The motorcyclist, David John Prior, aged 56, from Soulby died yesterday (28 August 2012) morning.
His family have paid tribute to a caring and witty man. Mr Prior’s brother, Stephen, said: “David was a huge part of his local community having spent his younger year at Pooley Bridge and then working for JT Atkinson’s Builders merchants, formally Thomas Althams for over 25 years.
“In recent months his new Harley Davidson was his pride and joy having wanted to own one for the past 40 years. David was a loving member of the family, adored for his caring and witty nature. He will be greatly missed, by me and his two nieces, Annabel and Katie, but will be remembered forever.
