“John was a well-known businessman in Arbroath.

“Outside of work he was an accomplished cyclist, boating was also an avid pursuit, as was scuba diving.

“In later years he took up kayaking and toured many of Scotland’s lochs and rivers with family and friends.

“Driving was another great passion and he enjoyed restoring a number of classic cars.

“He is survived by his parents, John and Liz, sister Tracey, brother Stuart and his two young daughters Isla and Rowan.

“He was also a devoted uncle to Adam and Baillie, Nieve and Charlotte.”

Sergeant David Farr added: “Our thoughts are with John’s family and friends at this very distressing time.

“Officials have been investigating to determine the full circumstances surrounding the crash and I would like to thank everyone for their help in answering our earlier appeal.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on number 101 quoting incident 2602 of 29 April 2023.”
