The wife of a "dearly loved" carpenter has paid tribute to her husband after he was killed in a crash.
Skirmantas Karpavicius, 42, from Romford, was hit by a white Ford Transit van while he was riding his blue Honda CB600 motorcycle in Abridge Road, Chigwell.
His wife Audrey Karpaviciene said: “Skirmantas was born in Lithuania and moved to the UK in 1995. He was a dearly loved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend to everyone that knew him.
“He worked as a carpenter in London and enjoyed fishing, keeping tropical fish, being a good husband, father and liked his motorbike.”
She added: “All the family members and friends will greatly miss Skirmantas very much.”
Audrey said the family wished to be left alone to grieve at this very difficult time.
The incident happened on Sunday, May 24, at about 10.10pm.
Police are continuing to investigate the collision and are appealing to witnesses or anyone with information to call Essex Police on 101.
