Denroy Dixon is remembered
On August 16th 2009, Denory Dixon (45) was doing what he loved most, riding his motorcycle. He was an experienced rider of more than 10 years and during the summer months would go for a ride out whenever he could as a reward for working hard. He was a responsible, hardworking business man who ran a kitchen fitting company as well as a popular person amongst the local community. In other words, he had everything to live for.
Denroy Dixon was travelling along the London Road in Stanford Rivers but at the junction of Shonks Mill Road, a Mitsubishi Pajero 4X4 collided into the motorcycle and Denroy Dixon was killed on impact. Maureen Mouton (72) who was a rear seat passenger in the Mitsubishi was also tragically killed.
A memorial for a much loved man
Bikers held a memorial for Denroy Dixon in August to remember a wonderful friend and fellow biker. This is a fitting tribute to someone who is still sadly missed. It also is a reminder of how fragile and precious, life and our loved ones are. Although nothing will ever take away the pain and loss which Denroy Dixon’s family and friends have been though, let us hope that his death will make drivers think carefully about bikers on the road and remember how vulnerable they can be.
If you are a biker and have a suffered an accident which was not your fault within the past 3 years, you might be able to claim compensation if you can’t go to work or have to pay someone to look after your children because you can’t get about properly.
