Family of teenager killed in crash pay tribute to 'loving, kind and affectionate' young man
The family of a teenager killed in a crash in Thorpe Market have paid tribute to him, saying his presence would “instantly lighten the mood”.
Harry Simons, 19, died at the scene of a crash on the A149 Cromer Road at about 7.50am on Wednesday, March 21.
The crash involved a Hyundai Tuscan and a Vauxhall Corsa, which Mr Simons was driving.
He lived in Hethersett, and worked as a teaching assistant.
His family said: “Harry was a loving, kind and affectionate brother, son and friend who was incredibly generous and full of hugs. He had a passion for music, either playing his guitars or, like most teenagers, listening to his varied CD collection very loudly!
“A loyal and true friend, Harry was laid back and fun to be with. He had an infectious laugh and was always up for a party. Harry loved spending time with his many mates and would do anything for anybody. When he came into a room he instantly lightened the mood.
“Harry worked as teaching assistant and had an abundance of patience with the children he supported and was well thought of by his work colleagues.
“Although young, Harry had traditional values, was well-mannered and chivalrous; a true gentleman. He was very much loved by everyone who knew him. Harry lived life to the full, was a pleasure to spend time with and will be missed by a great many people.”
