Family of motorcyclist pay tribute following fatal collision - A449, Cookley

Incident 354S of 5 November 2018

The family of 22 year old Oliver Terrence ROWLES from Kidderminster who died as a result of a road traffic collision on Monday 5 November on the A449, Cookley have issued the following tribute:-


"Oli's life was cruelly taken from him at age 22, whilst riding his beloved motorbike after finishing work at Titan Steel Wheels on Monday 5th of November. Oli is the joker of our family and his friends and always brought laughter and joy to others, he was kind and energetic with a love for food, the gym and his dogs. He was born with severe eczema and struggled with this throughout his life but we are so proud of the young man he came to be and all the issues he had overcome. Oli was so full of life, love and laughter - his absence leaves a silence too loud to bare. His dad, mom and sister will all miss him more than words can express and our lives will forever be changed without him.

We would like to thank the Air Ambulance, Medical Crews and Police for being with Oliver and trying to save his life that day.

For all funeral enquiries please contact Emma Powell at The Co-operative Funeral care in Kidderminster on 01562 824184

Oli would wish that anyone who attends his funeral dresses as they feel comfortable."


Oliver leaves a loving father Raymond, mother Jayne and sister Whitney.
