Tributes have been paid to a 24-year-old man who was killed in a Hatfield crash on Friday.

Christopher Dave Munsami, from Biggleswade, died following a crash on the A1(M) close to the Hatfield tunnel at around 7pm.

Chris’ mum Teresa said he was a popular person who had many friends.

The 52-year-old said: “Chris was a busy, happy go lucky person who would help anyone wherever they needed it.

“He was always the life and soul of the party, with a cheeky and cocky personality - he would always make everyone laugh.

“When he walked into a room, it would light up.

“One of my most treasured memories of Chris is when he took me away to Lanzarote for a week.”

She added: “Chris was one of life’s good guys, he never had a bad word to say about anyone and he was always doing something for someone - whether that was fixing a car, bike or computer - he was happy to help.

“We will all miss him so much.”

The 24-year-old had a passion for motorbikes and had studied Motorcycle Engineering at Bedfordshire College and attended Stratton School before that.

Chris’s family would like to extend their thanks to all of the people who have supported them during this difficult time.

They have been touched by everyone’s kindness.

Chris’s funeral is due to be held at St Andrew’s church in Biggleswade on February, 26 at 11am.
