Relatives of a prison officer who died after a road traffic collision in Bicester have paid tribute to a much-loved family man.
Dave Parris, 48, died after the collision between his bicycle and a car on the A4421 Neunkirchen Way, near Langford Village, at about 6pm on Tuesday last week.
The joint family tribute read: “The tragic loss of much-loved David, who will be dearly missed by family and friends. Dave was a family man who always had time for his friends.
“Dave lived in Banbury until he moved to London where he attended Kingswood Secondary School.
“Dave married and had two beautiful daughters that were everything to him. He later joined the prison service at Pentonville prison. “Three years ago he moved back to Banbury and started work at Bullingdon Prison and moved to Bicester to be near his work.
“Dave had so much to live for to see his two daughters grow up and he had a job he really enjoyed doing. He was loved and will never be forgotten by his parents, his daughters, his brothers and sister.
“We would like to thank the police, ambulance service and all the staff at the John Radcliffe Hospital.”
