The family, of a man killed on the M6 at the weekend have paid tribute, to “a beautiful, fun loving, go-getter who lived and loved life to the full.”
26 year old Sam Kelly from Northwich was engaged to be married, and left behind four brothers including a twin.
Referred to as ‘Sam the Man’ – he was the driver of a car which collided with a lorry between Junctions 19 and 20 at Lymm on Saturday, August 5.
He was airlifted to hospital, where he sadly died.
In a statement, his family say, “Sam ‘The Man’ is a beautiful, fun loving, go-getter who lived and loved life to the full. He will be sadly missed by his fiancé Lana, his Step Son to be Ashley, his Father Michael , Mum Carol and Step Dad Ross.
“Sam was a twin to Lucia, little bro to Oliver, and a big bro to Jonny and Wills. Grandson to Peter & Madge, Kate & Graham and the special bromance with Matt, and the last family member Bob the dog.
“All his extended family and loyal friends whose lives he touched will always miss him.”
The collision led to the full closure of the M6 Northbound through Cheshire for several hours.
