The family of a man who died following a road traffic collision near Llanuwchllyn on Saturday afternoon have paid tribute to him.

Timothy Seyffert was 47 years old and lived in the Llandrindod Wells area.

His family have issued the following tribute:

“Timothy, or Tim to those he knew, was my Dad. He was a kind, caring and compassionate man, whose hearty embrace he shared with those he cared for. Motorcycling has been a passion of his for many decades, and sadly I shall never get to enjoy his bi-wheeled company on the road ever again.

In this time of tragic circumstance, we kindly ask to be left in peace and privacy as we grieve for the man who filled our hearts with love and jollity.

With kind regards,

Tim’s family.”
