Tributes paid to man killed in Shropshire border crash

North Shropshire | News | Published:

Tributes have been paid to a 32-year-old man who died in a crash on the north Shropshire border.

The family of Andrew Beddows, who was from Nantwich and who died at the scene of the crash at Quoisley Bridge near Whitchurch on January 14, have described him as a "fun-loving" and "happy" man.

The accident happened at about 8.50pm when the green BMW 320 he was driving left the carriageway and collided with a tree.

A family statement said: "Andrew's death has left us all devastated.

"He leaves behind his parents Edward and Peggie, who he adored, his older brother Paul, who he always looked up to, his sister-in-law Kelly and nieces Evelyn and Annie, who were a big part of his life.

"He also leaves his fiancée Rachel Burleigh, who he recently proposed to in her home town of Liverpool on her birthday, and step-daughter Mollie, who he had lots of fun with.

"Andrew attended Bishop Heber High School in Malpas. He then followed in his father's footsteps by becoming an excellent mechanic.

"He was self-employed at D.A Roberts - he enjoyed his time there doing the job he loved best with his mates who he always had a good laugh with on a daily basis.

"Andrew was fun-loving, witty and always the life and soul of the party. He was loving, happy and would always help anyone in need. He always put a smile on our faces, which we will desperately miss.
