Wife pays tribute to man killed in A127 crash
1:57pm Monday 10th December 2012 in Local News
THE WIFE of a biker killed in a tragic accident on the A127 has paid tribute to him.
Christopher Simpson, 43, of Seaview Drive, Great Wakering, died after his red Suzuki motorcycle and a white lorry struck each other on the eastbound carriageway near the Mayflower Retail Park shortly after 6.30am on Tuesday, December 4.
His wife, Vicki Simpson, said: ""He was the life and soul of our house; always happy, always with a cheeky grin on his face and always charming everyone he met. He loved life."
Mr Simpson leaves behind his 11-year-old daughter Stephanie, his wife’s nine-year-old daughter Chloe and her three grown-up children, Ricky, Andy and Gary.
Mrs Simpson added: "Our family has been ripped to shreds by losing Chris in such a cruel and tragic way. His journey to work in Harlow was something he had done everyday for nearly a year, and he would always phone me to let me know he had got there safely. On Tuesday morning I never got my phone call."
