The family of an 87-year-old man who died in a car crash on Saturday have paid tribute to him.

Tony Regan, from Whitchurch, Cardiff, died after his car collided with a central reservation in Llandaff North.

Mr Regan’s family described him as a man who "lived life to the full".

“His energy and laughter inspired both his family and friends and he always had a tale or two to tell about the War and his time spent in the Merchant Navy.

“Originally from Tremorfa, a St Illtyd’s boy, he and his brother Colin were evacuated to Cwmparc during the Second World War where they spent two fun loving years.

“Until recent years he was a dedicated member of St Albans Band, Cardiff, who played at the Cardiff Arms Park on rugby internationals until the mid-1980s.

“He married Pat (late) and settled in Whitchurch to be a loving husband, father and grandfather.

“Upon retiring he became a keen member of the Whitchurch Hospital Bowls team. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.”

Witnesses to the collision or anyone with information is asked to contact South Wales Police on 101.
