Declan Butters - 09/11/90 - 11/01/11

DECLAN WAS ON HIS WAY TO WORK IN SELBY WHEN HE PULLED OVER ONTO THE HARD SHOULDER ON THE M62. WE ARE UNSURE AS TO WHY HE PULLED OVER, WE THINK HE HAD A DIRTY WINDSCREEN AND STOPPED TO CLEAN IT. HE WAS HIT BY A LORRY AND DIED IN PINDERFIELDS HOSPITAL HOURS LATER OF HIS INJURIES. HE WAS MY SHINING STAR. HE WAS EARNING MONEY AS A BUILDERS LABOURER BUT WAS APPLYING FOR UNI TO DO SPORTS THERAPY. I WAS VERY PROUD OF THE MAN HE WAS BECOMING, AND LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN, FOR MANY.
