Stephen’s family has paid tribute to him at this tragic time:

“Stephen was a lovely, honest, caring son, brother and uncle who will be sorely missed. He moved from Liverpool to Aberystwyth as a mature student to study politics and philosophy and never went back home again because he loved Aberystwyth so much. He applied to be a HGV driver with Aberystwyth Council and remained in the town. Stephen was a keen motorcyclist who loved the countryside and he loved Wales.”
