Barry Sullivan, 61, died on August 1, weeks after police think he was hit by a white van while cycling in Woolton in June.
Dean told the Liverpool Echo: "He was a lovely man. He kept himself to himself but we had his burial service on Friday and it was packed with people.
"All his friends were there and everyone who knew him. He was so well thought of.
"Barry loved gardening and he used to come to Wallasey to do my garden.
"For his funeral I picked a rose he had grown in my garden to wear."
