Fatal crash couple from York celebrated diamond wedding the day before their deaths

Dennis and Doreen Green

North Yorkshire Police have identified a couple who died after a crash in Gate Helmsley near York as Dennis Green, 81 and Doreen Green 80, from Strensall in the city.

The Green family have paid tribute to the pair.

"Dennis and Doreen were treasured and much loved parents, grandparents and great grandparents and very much the fixed point at the heart of our large family, which extends to siblings and nieces and nephews. We will all miss them more than words can say.****

"Despite their age, they had a very active social life, they loved sequence dancing and were out at least four times a week. They enjoyed several holidays a year, with Dennis often planning the next one before they'd even unpacked from the last!

"Having lived in Strensall for over 50 years, they were well known and respected in the village and their loss will be keenly felt both there and amongst their wide circle of friends.

"They had celebrated 60 years of marriage the day before the tragic accident, and a family party had been planned for the weekend.

"Their loss will leave a huge empty space at the head of our close family, but we will draw strength from each other and from the happy memories we all have of them. They had a wonderful and happy marriage and we draw some small comfort from the fact that they are still together."
