Family pays tribute to loving grandfather who died in M4 crash

The family of a 50-year-old man who died following a crash on the M4 last Thursday have paid tribute to the ‘young at heart’ grandad.

Simon Clover, known as Clodge to his family and friends, from Cardiff, was the passenger of a roads maintenance vehicle involved in a four-vehicle collision on the westbound carriageway of the M4 between junctions 17 and 18 shortly after 3.30am. He sadly died at the scene.

His family said in a statement: “Clodge was a loving husband, father and bampy. He was young at heart and such a family man who absolutely adored all his children and grandchildren.

“He was one-in-a-million and had lots of friends who adored him. He was a hard worker and quite often worked 7 days a week.

“He was a keen gardener, loved a game of poker, fishing and going down the river on a kayak.

“He was a keen Arsenal supporter and would try and go to the matches with his son.”

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: “The thoughts of everyone at Wiltshire Police are with them.”
