The following is a statement from the family of Roger Hayward, who died after being electrocuted whilst moving a fallen tree.
We would like to express our deep gratitude for the kind messages of condolence, love and support from friends and neighbours. [...] We are all shocked and deeply saddened with the passing of our dearest dad, husband, granddad and friend to many, Roger Hayward. [...] Roger was a larger than life character, a friend and helping hand to many and any that needed help. There are many stories of this covering not just Wiltshire but on occasions when on holiday too. Roger was one of life’s workers on his farm, never missed a day off in his life doing what he enjoyed to the end, helping others.
