Tributes have been paid to a “loving father” and “devoted husband” from Honiton who died in a road accident last week. Andrew Bonetta, 49, died after his motorcycle collided with a milk tanker on the A35 just outside Honiton on Sunday (May 18th), and his family have led the tributes. Mr Bonetta’s son, Ross, said: “Andrew was, and forever will be, a loving father, devoted husband and all round good guy. “Loving his football, a fan of West Ham United and a keen Exeter City supporter, he is sure to be missed on the terraces.” Mr Bonetta was pronounced dead at the scene following the incident, which occurred on the A35 at the entrance to Hale Farm at around 3:45pm. Police closed the road for over seven hours while an investigation of the scene took place and the vehicles were recovered. Ross Bonetta added: “He was also a keen motorcyclist and would spend many a sunny day on the open road whenever he could. “With his cheeky grin and witty banter, he will be dearly missed by all his friends and family, but never forgotten.” A police spokesperson said: “The collision occurred approximately one mile east of Honiton at the entrance to Hale Farm. A 750cc Kawasaki motorcycle and a milk collection tanker were involved in the collision.” Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference 597 of May 18th.
