Families pay tribute to men killed in light aircraft collision

The families of two men who died following a light aircraft collision near Wolvey have paid loving tribute to them.

Adrian Findlay, aged 55 from Rugby and Robert Stephens aged 56 and from Wolston, tragically passed away in hospital after the incident near Grove Farm on 28 September.

Adrian's wife Alison said: "Adrian was well-respected and much loved by everyone he came into contact with.

"Our whole family and his many friends are in shock at such a sudden and tragic loss.

"We send our heartfelt thanks for all the support we are receiving at this difficult time."

Robert's wife Caroline added: "Robert was a very hardworking, caring, family man and he lifted everyone's spirit the moment he entered a room with his cheeky sense of humour.

"Robert loved a challenge and went out of way to help others. He will be desperately missed by all his family and friends."

Robert's funeral will be held on Monday 16 October, 2pm at Stretton-on-Dunsmore church and Adrian's funeral is taking place on Friday 27 October 4pm at Rainsbrook Crematorium, Rugby.

An investigation by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch continues at this time and we ask that the privacy of both families is respected at this difficult time.
