Tributes paid to a ‘loving father, devoted husband and all round good guy’.

Tributes have been paid to a Honiton motorcyclist who died after a two vehicle collision near Honiton.

Andrew Bonetta was pronounced dead at the scene last Sunday.

The incident happened on the A35, Axminster Road, at 3.47pm and involved a 750cc Kawasaki motorcycle and a milk collection tanker.

The 49-year-old’s family said: “Andrew was, and forever, will be a loving father, devoted husband and all round ‘Good Guy’.

“Loving his football, West Ham United and keen Exeter City supporter he is sure to be missed on the terraces.

“Andrew also a keen motorcyclist would spend many a sunny day on the open road whenever he could.

“With his cheeky grin and witty banter, he will be dearly missed by all his friends and family, but never forgotten.”

The road was closed for over seven hours while an investigation of the scene took place and the vehicles were recovered. The tanker containing milk had to be pumped out before recovery.
