Tributes to man killed on A31
THE devastated daughter of the Ringwood man killed in a collision on the A31 has paid a touching tribute to her “loving, kind and sensitive” father.
Corinne Lipsett, 23, said her dad, 53-year-old Ross, will be “dearly missed” by herself, her sister Emma, 19, and their mother, Angie.
She said: “We are all devastated and wish to remember my dad as the loving, kind and sensitive man he was.
“He was an amazing dad and husband and would have done anything for me and my sister, always putting us first.
“He worked hard all his life and had a heart of gold. I will always miss him and love him so very much.”
Mr Lipsett, who was a warehouse worker, had been married to his wife Angie for nearly 28 years.
The father-of-two was killed in a collision in the early hours of Tuesday morning on the A31 just outside Ringwood.
His BMW crashed into the back of a parked lorry in a layby on P o u l n e r Hill at 2.30am.
Posting on the online version of the story, Corinne thanked people for their support and comments following the tragedy.
She said: “Firstly I would like to say a big thank you for everyone’s support and kind comments.”
She added: “People shouldn’t worry about being late for work, it’s nothing compared to losing someone you loved so dearly.”
The collision closed the westbound carriageway from junction two of the M27 to the Ashley Heath interchange on Tuesday.
