THE family of a motorcyclist who was killed in a car accident on Friday has released a tribute to him.

Robbie Schofield, 26, died following the collision on the A327 Finchampstead.

In a statement, his family said: "“The family and friends of the young man killed on Friday in a motorcycle accident on the A327 are all totally devastated and distraught.

“The loss of 26-year-old Robbie Schofield has cruelly cut short the life of a most beloved, caring and wonderful son, brother, grandson and friend.

“Robbie was the most dedicated of physics teachers at Farnborough Hill. He cared passionately about young people and devoted much of his free time to youth work and reaching out to help friends, family and young people.

“He was a member of Vineyard Church in Reading and had a strong faith, playing in the worship band. As well as being a very talented musician and song writer, he was also a qualified sailing instructor.

“He leaves behind his finance, Megs, to whom he was to be married in 10 weeks time, parents and 4 siblings. He will be missed with every passing moment but forever in our hearts.”

    Hopefully the other driver will get a decent sentence and not a few month's ban.

    Is the driver guilty? Tragic though this is, I'm not certain anyone knows what happened.
