The family of a 41-year-old man who died following a collision on the M6 in Cheshire have paid tribute to him.
Christopher Smith passed away on Wednesday 16 November following a three-vehicle collision in Thelwall, which occurred at 12.30am on Tuesday 15 November.
Following his death, Mr Smith’s family said: “Christopher was a loving son, brother and uncle, and he was devoted to his partner Mandy.
“The couple were awaiting the arrival of their first child, and Christopher was extremely excited about the prospect of becoming a father himself.
“Christopher was very close to his family, and nothing was ever too much trouble for him in regard to his friends.
“He loved to spend time with Mandy and working to provide for her, and also enjoyed watching and playing football.
“Christopher will always be remembered for his great sense of humour. Following his death Christopher has donated his organs so that others can live on.”
A 28-year-old man from North Wales has since been charged in connection with the incident.
He is currently in custody and is set to appear at Chester Crown Court on Wednesday 14 December.
