The family of a ‘loving’ teenager with an ‘infectious smile’ has paid tribute to him following his death last weekend after a collision in Tameside.
Stuart MacLeod (17), from the Mossley area, sadly passed away in hospital after colliding with a parked car while riding on his motorbike on Manchester Road shortly after 8pm on Saturday 16 September.
Paying tribute to him, Stuart’s family said: “Stuart was a whirlwind from the moment he was born until he began his eternal journey.
“He was a loving, caring giant of a character who would look after all those he loved.
“His family and friends will deeply miss his infectious smile and ability to make everyone around him laugh like the class clown he was.
“Bright and so intelligent, he had the ability to turn the most basic of conversations into full-on debate.
“With every waking moment we miss you, Stuart, and will always love you like you are right by our sides.
“RIP beautiful boy. Fly high with the angels our darling son, brother, and friend. We are heartbroken forever.”
