Family pay tribute to man who died in Yate crash
The family of a 28-year-old man who died after his car hit houses in Yate have paid tribute to him.
Matthew Justin Krekelaar, from Yate, was the driver of a car which hit a tree and houses in Shire Way on October 1.
The tribute from his family says:
"Matt was the kindest, most lovable, thoughtful, adoring, annoying at times, brother, father, fiance, nephew, grandson, great-grandson and son.”
“He leaves behind two little girls who would wind up him up, play up, argue and drive him round-the-bend, but who really love him and will miss him terribly.”
“He will leave a gap in our lives that no one else will ever deserve to fill. He loved music, cars, football (unfortunately), rugby, cooking and welding.”
“Matt was an amazing chef who could knock up a masterpiece with only a couple of ingredients.”
“Forever in our hearts. Sleep tight our sweet prince.”
