THE family of a young Barrow man who died in a crash on Friday have paid tribute to a “caring and loving lad who always looked after his family.”
Scott Daniel Gibson, aged 23 from Lesh Lane, Barrow, died after being involved in an accident on the A590 near Lindal at approximately 10.30pm when his motorcycle was involved in a collision with a police van.
His family said today: “Scott was a car and motorbike fanatic and he loved tinkering with his bikes to make them perfect. He was a rider for the last three years.
“After leaving Parkview School, Scott gained an apprenticeship as a motor mechanic from Furness College. He has then worked at Mowbray’s Auto’s in Barrow for the past seven years. Scott really enjoyed working there and his boss, Dave Mowbray was a loyal friend and they went on regular bike rides together.
“Scott was a popular lad with lots of good friends. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him and he will never be forgotten.”
Scott’s younger brother Matthew, said: “'You were a massive part of my life Scott. I honestly don't know what I am going to do without you, you have touched so many people’s hearts. Keep that big smile brother. Mam and Dad are in safe hands with me. I will make you proud. Love you.”
Scott leaves behind his mother Eleanor father Roy, younger brother Matthew, and Wynston the dog.
Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the collision and appeal for any witnesses who were in the area, or who may have seen something that will help with the investigation to contact Cumbria Police on 101 and speak to a member of the Operational Support Unit.
