Tribute has been paid to Stevenage man David Davies, who died after being hit by a car on the A505 on December 2.
David, aged 39, was hit by a vehicle as he walked along the eastbound carriageway of the A505 Luton Road – by Offley, between Hitchin and Luton – at about 7pm.
David, who worked in the catering industry, lived in Stevenage at the time of his death, but had spent most of his life in St Neots and had a large network of family and friends there.
He was born in Queensway, St Neots, the second child of Dave and the late Collette, and was brother to Carla, Christopher and Mark.
He attended Eynesbury Church of England Primary School and later Longsands Secondary School, and has been described as someone who was fun-loving and easy going and who loved to socialise.

“He was a really loving brother and his death came as a huge shock,” said younger brother Chris.
“We will all miss his fun-loving personality. Although he had moved away, he kept in touch and loved spending time with his five nieces and nephews. He helped me move house recently and I am so glad I got to spend that time with him.”
