The devastated family of a 22-year-old who tragically died in a car crash has paid tribute to 'the best kid you could ever imagine'.
Jack Neil, from Little Sutton , passed away on September 25, after the BMW he was driving crashed on Rivacre Road in Eastham.
His best friend Lewis Hughes, who was a passenger in the car, was taken to hospital with minor injuries but sadly Jack was pronounced dead at the scene.
In a tribute to his brother, Billy Neil, 25, said Jack was 'just amazing', our sister paper the Liverpool Echo reports.
The dad-of-three said: “He was the best kid you could ever imagine.
“I am his older brother but he was a better dad to my kids than I was.
“They all loved him.
“He was a uncle, a brother, a son, a boyfriend, everything.”
Jack, who owned his own plastering business with a friend - J&A Plastering - lived on Berwick Road, in an apartment with his girlfriend Francesca Barrett.
Billy said his death “didn’t feel real.”
He added: “You can’t even imagine [how we feel].
“He was a good, nice lad.
“He didn’t drive round like a maniac, didn’t sell drugs - he wasn’t one of those lads.
“He was successful.”
Jack, who was one of five and had two brothers and two sisters, had a passion for motocross and would do Land Rover off roading with friends.
He was also a lover of music, in particular rap and one of his favourite artists was 50 Cent.
Billy added: “We are all in a bad way.
“It doesn’t feel real.
“I keep thinking it can’t be true.”
Tributes have flooded in for Jack following his tragic death and a memorial has been set up for him on Rivacre Road, with hundreds of people turning up to pay their respects.
Flowers, candles and messages of condolence have been left at the scene and friends have also held a night in his memory, where lanterns were released and his favourite music played.
Billy said: “I couldn’t believe how many people came down to pay their respects to him.
“There was about 300 people that came down to lay flowers, it was amazing.
“If that many people came out for that I just know his funeral will be massive.
“We want to give him the send off he deserves.”
A JustGiving page to raise funds for Jack’s funeral has been launched and donations have reached almost £1,500 of a £5,000 total.
