In a family tribute, Dean’s wife Laura said:


“Dean Williams – Dean Arms, Dean.

“A loving husband, dad, doting grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and daddy to the fur babies.

“My beautiful husband passed away in the early hours of Friday morning in a road collision, riding the vehicle he loved.

“He had three passions in his life: his family, his motorbikes and the gym. A well-liked Trealaw boy, who will be truly missed.

“Us as a family thank everyone for their loving and kind words. Please be patient as we come to terms of his tragic loss, and we will all reply in due course. Thank you, Laura and family.”
