James O’Brien, lovingly known as Jimmy, died when his car overturned at the junction of Stallings Lane and Ham Lane on Monday (May 15).
The 28-year-old father-of-four was treated by emergency services, including the air ambulance, but was pronounced dead at the scene.
In a statement his family said: “Jimmy, was very much loved by all that knew him.
“He was a loving husband and father, a caring son and an amazing brother and uncle. He will be so deeply missed by all that knew him.
