The family of a church volunteer killed in a car crash in Manchester has paid tribute.
Louis Dube, aged 25, was riding in the passenger seat of a car on Mount Road when it crashed.
The incident occurred on the 5th December.
One man, aged in his 30s, has been charged with causing the death by dangerous driving.
In a statement published by Greater Manchester Police, his mum Nompi Dube and brother Emmanuel said: "Louis was a loving son, brother, nephew, and friend to so many.
"When Louis wasn’t in work, he could be found in Church volunteering or studying for his master’s degree.
"Most recently, Louis was training for a marathon to help raise funds for the local Homeless Community.
"There are so many stories that show who Louis was; now as a family we can reflect on these. For example, we recall when Louis provided shelter to a family whose house had caught fire.
"Louis’ faith was so important to him, and it was emphasised in how he lived his life. Louis was selfless, kind-hearted and a joy to be around.”
Emmanuel said: "Louis was my role model, and nothing was ever too much; he showed love to everybody and would drop everything to help you”
Nompi added: "Louis was not only my son, but he was also my best friend. I remember Louis always smiling and I am so proud of him.
"Christmas without Louis will be immensely difficult not only for the family, but for everybody that knew him."
