THE family of a young man who died in a bike crash earlier this year have suffered another heartbreaking tragedy.

There was devastation when Trafford Quantrill-Stott, 21, of Scholemoor, died in a bike crash.

Now his family are dealing with more heartache following the death of his mother, Debbie.

She turned 40 on the day Trafford was killed, but sadly died last Thursday, July 18.

Her mum, Ann Quantrill, said she suffered a brain aneurysm.

Paying tribute, she said: "She was like Trafford, kind and generous to a fault but tough when she had to be, popular, as was Trafford, and will be missed by so many.

"We are lost for words right now with Trafford still in our minds."

She said the family were devastated and shocked at the news, but "so proud" of her too.

Following her death, Debbie's organs including both kidneys, liver and heart were donated, as well as some of her tissue.

Debbie is survived by her daughter Codie, mum Ann and dad Alan, her brother Ian, close friend Toni and many family members who are offering support.

A balloon release is due to be held on July 26 in tribute to Debbie, who lived on Scholemoor.

The sad news comes just months after Trafford's death on May 10, when the bike he was riding, a KTM Duke, crashed on Clayton Road, Lidget Green.

It was standing room only at his funeral and there were both tears and laughter as touching tributes were read out in celebration of Trafford's life.

He was said to be the "most beautiful, kindest son".

Trafford's sister Codie reflected on the time she had spent with her brother.

In a tribute read out on her behalf, she said he had a "heart of gold" and was the "softest guy you could ever meet".

While his grandma Ann said: "My heart is now broken forever."

His grandad, Alan, added: "You had a laugh that made me laugh and a smile that made me smile.

"I will love you always."

A charity cycle ride is due to take place next month in his memory, with the hope of raising £3,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity.

The 170-mile cycle ride, which has been organised by Anthony Farrer, 44, will begin on August 2 and will go from Bradford to Bridlington, then to Scarborough and back, all in the name of raising vital funds for the good cause.

Mr Farrer said: "He was a good friend of mine and a good friend of a lot of people in Scholemoor.

"He was just a loss to all of us."
