Letchworth mum pays tribute to son who died in crash

A MOTHER has paid a touching tribute to her “perfect son” who died in a motorcycle crash.

Simeon Mullings died on the A505 along the Baldock Road on Sunday when his bike was in collision with another bike.

The 23-year-old worked at the Iceland supermarket in Hitchin, with his grandmother Sandra Norris.

Mother-of-two Teresa Mullings from Burnell Rise, Letchworth GC said her son was one in a million and nobody had a bad word to say against him.

Miss Mullings, 41, said Simeon who still lived at home, had been riding motorbikes for the past three years.

“He wanted to ride to France, he felt free when he rode his bike.”

Miss Mullings added: “He was the perfect son to have in every single way, he was my angel.”

Simeon enjoyed playing on his X-box and fishing with friends and his 15-year-old brother Tyvon.

He also enjoyed going out to parties and often went to Hitchin to enjoy the nightlife.

His grandmother Sandra said: “He was the life and soul of the party.”

Simeon’s aunt Laura said: “You couldn’t ask for a better nephew. He was like a brother to his cousins. They would play fight and mess around. It’s not going to be the same without him.”

Another aunt, Corrine Norris from Weston, added: “He was one of the most loving, kindest and genuine people you would ever meet. He was taken too soon.”

Tributes have been paid to Simeon on the Herts Beds and Bucks Bikers’ Facebook page.

Ali Scott wrote: “So young, so very sad, RIP thoughts are with family and friends.”

Chairman of the group Stevie Stark said: “It is a tragic loss to the biker community.”

A tribute night was due to be held yesterday at The White Lion Pub in Hitchin.

His funeral will be held on Friday, September 14 at 11am at Harwood Park, Stevenage.

Simeon’s mum would like his bike community friends to attend his funeral on their motorbikes.
