The family of a popular Stroud builder have paid tribute to him after he died suddenly on Tuesday.
It is believed that 54-year-old Richard Nash had a medical episode while driving his Ford Ranger. His vehicle subsequently collided with a pole and came to a stop in a hedge shortly before 5pm.
Despite the best efforts of members of the public and emergency services, including an air ambulance, Mr Nash died at the scene.
His family have said: “A well-known local man and respected builder Richard Nash sadly passed away on 25 October in Bussage following a medical episode in his truck whilst returning home from work.
“Claire and family would like to thank everybody that came to his aid at the scene and for all the cards and messages of condolence.
