A DAREDEVIL dad has plummeted to his death on a dream skydiving holiday.
Craig Chesworth, of Ludford Street in Crewe, plunged through the roof of a house in Florida after his parachute opened too close to the ground.
The 23-year-old part-time model later died from severe head injuries.
He was on a two-week course and had paid more than £1,200 for 100 jumps and lessons at the Freefall Adventures skydiving school near Miami. He was hoping to become an instructor.
His grieving wife Kate said: 'He had been saving every spare penny to go. He loved the feeling that skydiving gave him.'
Mr Chesworth was described by his family as a 'bright star' who shone at everything he did.
His brother, Dave Smith said: 'Craig seemed to have a profound effect on everyone he met. When he walked into the room everyone noticed him.
'He was a free spirit and always had to be the centre of attention. He will be deeply missed.'
Mr Chesworth was a former pupil of Ruskin High School in Crewe. He doted on his two-year-old son Jordan.
Kate added: 'He adored Jordan and his memory will live on through him. He looks so much like his daddy. Jordan keeps asking for him and we tell him he is with the stars.
'We are all still in shock. I don't think it will sink in until Craig's body is back in Crewe.'
The family have yet to be told when Mr Chesworth's body can be flown home but hope it will be next week.
Mr Chesworth was taken by helicopter to a brain trauma centre but was certified dead on arrival.
