Tributes have been paid to a father-of-two from Alton who died in a crash last week. 

22-year-old Thomas Matthew Price of Baverstocks, was in a Blue Ford Fiesta with his friend Luke Gething, 20, when the vehicle left the carriageway and hit a tree. 

The pair were travelling towards Winchester, one mile east of St Swithun's School last Thursday (April 25). 

Police were called to the B3404 Alresford Road at around 6.30am where  both men were pronounced dead. 

Paying tribute, Mr Price's family said:

"Tom was sadly taken from us far too soon. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. The unexpected tragedy has left all of us devastated.

"He has left behind a family and fiancée who are shaken and heartbroken by his sudden loss, especially his two young beautiful sons Thomas and Peter who he absolutely adored.

"He will be truly missed by his family and friends and everyone who knew him.

"We would like to thank everyone for their kind words and support, it really is appreciated."

Luke Gething
Luke Gething, 20, of Somerset Fields, Bentley, is described as "charming and kind". 

The family of Mr Gething said:

"Luke was a deeply loved son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend. He was kind, loving, caring, and hilarious.

"He was a remarkable young lad who overcame so many difficult hurdles in his life. He was charming and kind to everyone who he knew.

"He will be ever so missed by everyone that knew him. Rest In Paradise Luke, gone but never forgotten. Always in our hearts and thoughts."
