The family of a loving father who was killed during a collision in Salford over the weekend have paid a touching tribute to him.

Pavè Corkovic sadly passed away as a result of his injuries this past Saturday (22 June 2024).

The 60-year-old father of three was involved in a collision on Albion Way, in the Greater Manchester city of Salford, when he lost his life, and following the tragic incident, a 38-year-old man has now been arrested.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) confirmed the man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving in connection with the incident.

He has since been released on bail.

Paying tribute to Pavè and his legacy following his tragic death, his family said: “There are no words to express how we feel. We as a family are in disbelief and none of us will ever forget him.

“Drago, the twins’ big brother, will make sure they know everything about their dad, especially how he turned his life around and did right by them. He loved being a family man and was their protector, provider and a constant presence in their lives.


“Nt, Drago, the twins, your dog Rocky, the family and your many beloved friends are so proud of how far you’ve come. We will miss you Pavè, and your legacy will live on through your kids. 

“As Pavè would say – ‘life is a question of mind over matter, I don’t mind and you don’t matter.'”

The family also appreciates and has thanked the Greater Manchester public for the “love, support, and condolences” they have received since their “Salford legend” passed away.


“We ask for privacy at this time to grieve the loss,” the family’s statement concludes.

Following the tragic incident, a police investigation has subsequently been opened, and police are continuing to appeal for witnesses, as well as anyone with any information, CCTV, or dashcam footage, to come forward and help.
