Tributes to Warwickshire man killed in Poland

Tributes are being paid to a Warwickshire man who's died in an accident during a holiday with friends in Poland.

Ex Princethorpe College student Richard Bunt fell from the vehicle taking the group to their hotel in Krakow last Friday - and died from a head injury on Tuesday.

The 33 year old's family said:

"It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of our wonderful son, Richard, who died on Tuesday, June 13 after a tragic accident in Krakow, Poland. He brought so much happiness to our lives and was a loving husband, caring son and brother, friend and colleague. Richard affected so many lives with his love, his brilliant humour and everyday acts of kindness. We take great strength from knowing that his final gift was his greatest of all – donating his organs to save six people – giving other families so much joy and hope.

"He will always be treasured by us and by everyone who knew him and we are immensely proud of the man he was. We would like to thank all the kind people who helped and prayed for Richard and also thank our family and friends around the world." 

Richard is survived by his wife Lucy (32), his younger brother and best friend Andrew (29), his parents Ann and Nigel and his huge number of family and friends.
