The family of a Shotton man who sadly died following a road traffic collision on Sealand Road on Tuesday have paid tribute to him.
A family statement says:
Joseph Michael Evans, 49 who lived in Shotton was father to Joseph, Dolly and Alfie, son to Angela and Joe and brother to Paul, Angela and Donna.
Joe attended Deeside High School and went on to serve his apprenticeship at Airbus and worked as an aircraft engineer worldwide.
He was a huge Everton supporter, a blue through and through. He lived his life to the full fitting 100 years into 49. He was fun, outgoing, everyone’s friend and touched by any who entered his life.
Everyone is absolutely devastated by this tragic accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with his younger sister Donna who was also involved in the accident and is recovering in hospital.
Joe will be sorely missed by everyone who was fortunate to meet him and who held him in great affection.
