The family of a 25-year-old man killed in a horror crash in Manchester have paid tribute to their ‘loving son, brother, nephew and friend’.

Louis Dube tragically died four days after a serious collision on Mount Road in Gorton.

He had sustained serious injuries in the incident, which occurred on Monday 5 December at around 11.30pm.

Louis’s mother Nompi and brother Emmanuel have described his ‘kind-hearted’ nature and the voluntary work he did for his church and for charity.

They said: “Louis was a loving son, brother, nephew, and friend to so many.


“When Louis wasn’t in work, he could be found in Church volunteering or studying for his master’s degree.

“Most recently, Louis was training for a marathon to help raise funds for the local Homeless Community.


“There are so many stories that show who Louis was; now as a family we can reflect on these. For example, we recall when Louis provided shelter to a family whose house had caught fire.

“Louis’ faith was so important to him, and it was emphasised in how he lived his life. Louis was selfless, kind-hearted and a joy to be around.”

Emmanuel said: “Louis was my role model, and nothing was ever too much; he showed love to everybody and would drop everything to help you”


Nompi added: “Louis was not only my son, but he was also my best friend. I remember Louis always smiling and I am so proud of him.

“Christmas without Louis will be immensely difficult not only for the family, but for everybody that knew him.”

Louis Dube’s family have asked for privacy while they grieve for their loss.
