The family of a man who died in a crash on a Powys road have paid tribute to a “genuine, loving trustworthy man”.

The family of Shaun Dufty, who was killed in a crash near Rhayader on October 8 have said that  their world has been "shattered by his loss and they have been left with a huge hole in their hearts."

Shaun, from Upton-Upon-Severn in Worcestershire, was riding his motorcycle along the A470 Rhayader to Llangurig road at about 8.55 am when he was involved in a collision. He died at the scene.


His family said in a public statement: “Shaun was a loving son, husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle and had a wide circle of friends.

“He was a fun-loving man who was a member of two motorbike clubs, enjoying riding his bikes with the bike members on Thursdays and Sundays and went to regular bike meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

“His hobby was getting 1980s bikes and restoring them back to their original condition.

“He enjoyed his foreign holidays, snorkelling, loved his food and had an amazing zest for life.

“Shaun was a genuine, loving, trustworthy man.

“Our world has been shattered by his loss and we have been left with a huge hole in our hearts.”

Mr Dufty’s family have asked that they be afforded the time to grieve at this very difficult time. They are being supported by specialist officers.

Dyfed-Powys police have said they are continuing to investigate the collision, and are appealing for any witnesses that may be able to help with the investigation to come forward.
