The family has released this tribute to Lawrence, who was also known as Oz:
"Oz Pemberton tragically lost his life in a road traffic accident on his way to work.
"He was highly skilled in his job as a carpenter and could pretty much turn his hand to anything. "Oz's passions in life were his daughters Tayla age 14, Lana age 12 and his partner Lisa.
"Oz's other passions were extreme kiting/kite surfing and his Harley Davidson.
"He was a very private person, unique in his ways.
"He will be sorely missed by his loving family who are understandably devastated."

Please respect the family's wishes to be left alone at this difficult time.

Wiltshire Police is still appealing for witnesses; anyone with information about the collision should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
