A MUM has paid tribute to ‘a really great son’ who died at the scene of a collision in Terrick last week.

Mark Alan Camber, 49, died after a crash in Nash Lee Road at around midnight last Monday, April 16, when he was riding his bike.

His mum, Elizabeth Camber, has described her son as a ‘very quiet, private man’.

“He was a lovely, quiet man who never argued,” she said.

“I was completely devastated when I found out what had happened – I still can’t believe it now.

“Mark went to school at Long Crendon, before we moved to Terrick and then he went on to Mandeville School. When he left he then became a butcher for the Co-op in Princes Risborough – although he always hated eating lamb when he was a kid. He then joined Mrs King at King’s Farm Shop in Terrick, as the Co-op was due to close and she had approached him.

“This proved to be a success for him, as he was a very good butcher, and he will be greatly missed by all his customers and his many friends.

“He greatly enjoyed his work, and cycling.”

Meanwhile, Mark’s boss Garry King, who he had worked for since 1985 at Kings Farm shop, has hailed Mark as a ‘real character’ who was ‘quiet’ and a ‘good worker’.

“He was a very conscientious employee,” he said.

“Mark had worked here so long he became part of Kings Farm.

“I would like to thank all our customers on behalf of all the staff here for their support as so many lovely cards and flowers have been left at the shop in his memory.”

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and another on suspicion of obstructing police. They have been bailed until May 24.
