A DOTING father-of-two who will be missed by so many.

That’s the tribute paid by heartbroken Christina Gregory to husband Robert who was killed on the A5 while out cycling on the A5 on Sunday.

Robert, 43, and from Little Brickhill, died after a collision involving his bicycle and a red Peugeot 306.

Christina said: “He lived most of his life in and around Milton Keynes and made many friends in his lifetime and will be missed by many. Rob worked as a maintenance engineer with One Stop which he really enjoyed even though he had at times long distances to travel.

“Rob was such a caring person, he was a loving father and doted on his children, Aaron, five and Zoe, aged two. He was a wonderful husband filling our lives with so much love and laughter.”

Robert, a keen cyclist, was cycling along the A5 northbound carriageway at around 9.50am on Sunday when the accident happened

Christina said: “Rob loved his cycling and would cycle for miles exploring the county. When he wasn’t cycling he would be making improvements to our home, just last year building a conservatory for our children to play in.”

Christina also described how important Robert was to their children and how much of an impact his death will have on them.

She said: “He was loved and highly thought of by all who knew him, always ready to offer a helping hand to those who needed it, and no one loved him more than his family.

“He will be missed more than anyone will ever know; he was a great father with so much patience and was in the process of teaching his son how to ride his bike without stabilisers.

“Rob made a big impression on so many people and they have shown such sorrow at our loss. I can’t put into words what a caring man he was and what a great hole he will make in so many people’s lives.”

Police are appealing for witnesses to the accident to call 0845 8 505 505 or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The 27-year-old driver of the car has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and released on bail until May 4.
