Andrew Keep, 22, from Great Bealings.

The family of a man who died following a road crash on the B1084 at Bromeswell on Friday, 29 January have paid tribute to him.

His family said:

"Andrew is hugely missed and loved by his mum and dad, and by his older brother Chris and younger sisters, Alexandra and Felicity. He has also left devastated some very close friends and as well as his extended family, many friendship groups and villagers in Bealings.

His family have been much consoled by many kind comments both in person and through social media. Andrew was clearly a loyal and trusted friend as well as a loving son and brother.

We understand that his passing would have probably been instantaneous and painless. His family would particularly like to thank the passers-by that stopped to help, the many emergency services who attended and did everything they could, and the people who lived opposite who were so kind to us. The support we have received from family, friends and the police has touched our hearts at a very difficult time.

The family will announce funeral arrangements for his many friends through Andrew’s Facebook page.

His family have suggested any friends wishing to make donations do so to the East Anglian Air Ambulance charity as this was a cause that Andrew supported.

– Family tribute

Andrew's funeral will take place at Great Bealings church on Monday 15th February at 2:30pm with his burial in the churchyard immediately afterwards.
