Family pay tribute to 65-year-old man who died in road traffic collision in Cardiff

The 65-year-old man who died following a road traffic collision on Leckwith Road, Cardiff on Tuesday December 20th has been named as John Benedict Laurence from the Roath area of Cardiff.

Mr Laurence’s family has paid the following tribute to him:

“We knew him as Ben but to many he is fondly remembered by his nickname of “Grunt”.

“As a family we are deeply saddened to find out about the sudden passing of Ben. He’s had challenges all of his life but did discover happiness with his long-term partner Liz for over 30 years before she sadly passed away several years ago.

“Since then, Ben has made the most out of life and his passion was riding motorcycles and visiting new places far and wide. He loved adventure and exploring and had so many plans which have now cruelly been taken away.

“He made many friends in his time here and I’m sure I speak on behalf of everyone when I say how missed he will be. Rest in peace Ben”.

Officers are continuing to investigate the collision between a bicycle and a Daf lorry which occurred shortly after 4.00pm on Tuesday evening (December 20) on Leckwith Road.

South Wales Police is appealing to any witnesses who have not yet come forward or who may have any dashcam or video footage of the incident to come forward and quote reference 2200424961.
