Loving dad died in crash just weeks after birth of baby.


AN "EXTREMELY kind and generous" dad-of-four, killed in a crash at the weekend, had only recently celebrated the birth of a baby daughter.

Lee Pemberton, 44, from Rhos, near Wrexham, was killed in a crash involving a van and a car on Sunday night at the junction with the A539 for Hanmer.

In a heartfelt tribute his bereft family described a man who was "always full of energy". They said: "Lee was the son of Paul and Karen. He had one brother and two sisters and are all from the Wrexham area.

"Lee was also a loving father to Ellie, Benny, Beau and Raya-Mae, who he sadly leaves behind. Lee and his partner, Gemma, have recently celebrated the birth of their first child, Raya-Mae, who is only nine weeks old.

"Gemma and Lee loved their time together and have made very precious memories together as a family. Lee was extremely kind, generous and was always full of energy.

"He dedicated a lot of his time to his family and friends and was always helping others before himself. He really did have a good heart.

"Lee was employed as a construction worker, where he travelled all over the country working on a number of different projects.

"He would often spend the week away working, but would always return to his family at weekends. Lee will be sadly missed by everyone who was fortunate enough to have him in their lives. As a family we would like to thank all of the emergency services for their efforts and service over the past few days."

North Wales Police continue to appeal for witnesses, or anyone with information about the collision to come forward.

Following the crash, Sergeant Meurig Jones, of the Roads Policing Unit, said: "Just prior to the collision, we believe a blue car, possibly a BMW or similar, which was travelling from the direction of Whitchurch towards Bangor-on-Dee, had to take evasive action after being confronted by the van. I am appealing to the driver of that vehicle to please make contact with us to assist with our ongoing investigation.

"Equally, I am also appealing to anybody who may have been travelling along the A525 around the time of the collision to contact us."

Anybody with information is urged to contact officers at the Roads Policing Unit via live webchat or via 101, quoting incident number B085032.
