THE family of loving dad Shaun Jarvis have paid a touching tribute to him.

The 38-year-old from Woolstone tragically died on the A41 in Watford at 3.30am on Sunday, March 20, following a road traffic collision on his motorcycle.

Police are now appealing for any witnesses who may have seen Shaun at any time on the fateful night.

He was travelling in the direction of Hemel Hempstead on the A41 when his motorcycle collided with a crash barrier between the Hunton Bridge roundabout and junction 20 of the M25, about 200 yards past Langleybury Lane.

A driver in a light-coloured or silver Peugeot people carrier stopped briefly at the scene before driving off.

Investigating officer, PC Matt Hollingsworth, said: “I am appealing for anyone who may have been in the area at the time and may have seen the motorcycle either before or after the collision.

“I am also very keen to speak to the driver of the people carrier that stopped at the scene.

“ I would like to stress that the driver of this vehicle is not in any trouble at all, we are hoping that he may have witnessed something that may help us with our investigations.”

Ex-wife Paula said: “Shaun was a kind, considerate and approachable person, who loved spending time with his children – they were his world.

“He had so many friends and was loved by all who knew him. We will all miss him terribly but are comforted in knowing that he is resting peacefully.”

He will be sadly missed by his parents Norman and Gwen, his sisters Sharon and Marie, ex-wife Paula and their children Keegan, 12 and nine-year-old Tayla, his partner Astrid and his extended family in the UK and Australia.

Growing up, he enjoyed cricket, karate, golf and fishing; he also had a keen interest in birds which led him to build his own aviary in his back garden. 

Shaun regularly played cricket for MK City, Great Linford and North Bucks Ambulance.

Shaun’s funeral will be held at Crownhill Crematorium, Milton Keynes on April 1 at noon.

The family have requested family flowers tonly.
