Tribute to caring family man Dennis George who died weeks after A141crash
A driver injured in a crash that claimed the life of a Wisbech woman has died nearly a month after the accident.
The family of eighty-four-year-old Dennis George have paid tribute to him describing him as a "caring family man" following his death in hospital last week.
Dennis, of Churchill Road, Gorefield was the driver of a Vauxhall Astra car which was involved in a collision with a Peugeot 206 on the A141 at Hobbs Lot Bridge on September 24.
The Peugeot driver, Valentina Moneva, 50, of Alexandra Road, Wisbech, died in the collision.
Dennis was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge following the crash and sadly passed away in hospital last week.
His family issued a statement in tribute to him.
They said: “Denny was a loving, caring family man who enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his wife, three sons, and grandchildren. He also had two great grandchildren who he never had the chance to meet due to Covid. The loss of Denny has devastated us all.
“We shared so many happy times and have such happy memories, but he was taken much too soon. He had lots of love to give and so much still to live for.
"As a family we were not ready to let him go and are so very heartbroken that his life was cut short in this way.
“Many of Denny’s friends and former co-workers have paid tribute to him this past week by saying… ‘What a great bloke he was’, ‘he was a true gentleman’ and ‘he mentored me and taught me so much at work.’
“Denny will be so very much missed by all who knew him.”
Following the crash, which happened at around 3pm on Friday September 24 police issued an appeal for witnesses, dashcam footage or anyone who saw the vehicles in the moments leading up to the incident.
Anyone who witnessed the collision should contact police via web chat, online forms or 101 quoting incident 275 of 24 September.
