“He was always there for us”: The family of Usman Patel pay tribute
Main article content
Usman was a loving son, brother, uncle and a father who was very close to his family and was loved by us all.
He would light up any room he walked into with his smile. He was kind hearted, caring and was always there for us.
Usman’s daughter was his world. Their father and daughter relationship and the memories they were creating would have continued to grow but this has now been taken away from them both.
Saturday 18 July 2021 is the day which is stamped in our hearts as the most painful day in our lives. Our hearts sank. We were shocked, heartbroken and in floods of tears.
As a family, we have been left traumatised from that day and live in pain thinking about how Usman died, what he would have gone through on that night and what exactly happened. We are left with questions that we do not have answers to and questions that we may never have answers to.
Life will never be the same for us. Usman’s death has broken us and not a single day goes by when we don’t think of him. We miss him every day. We loved him so much.
