A FAMILY have paid tribute to their loved one after he died following a collision on the A12 on Sunday.


Steve Bint, 59, from Colchester, died after his Ford Mondeo left the road and collided with a tree on the embankment between Kelvedon and Marks Tey.

His wife Sue, on behalf of the family, said: “Steve was an amazing person and a dearly loved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

“Steve believed in ‘working to live’ and planned to retire this year following 42 years working for the Royal London & FOS.

“He was a huge music and sports fan and loved watching West Ham win and going to quizzes.

“He was the best kind of person anyone could imagine; warm, generous, fun-loving, intelligent and so full of love. Steve will be dearly missed by everyone, particularly his wife and two sons.

“The family request to be left alone and allowed to grieve at this very difficult time.”
