A cyclist who died in a collision with a car was a "family man" who "always had time for his friends", his family has said.

Dave Parris, 48, was involved in the crash with a Ford Escort on the A4421 Neunkirchen Way, Bicester, Oxfordshire, last Tuesday.

He was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, where he was pronounced dead.

Mr Parris, who worked for the prison service, had two daughters.

His family said when he was younger he moved from Banbury to work at Pentonville prison in London.

He would later return to Oxfordshire and was working at Bullingdon prison at the time of his death.

In a statement, his family added: "Dave was a family man who always had time for his friends.

"Dave had so much to live for - to see his two daughters grow up and he had a job he really enjoyed doing.

"He was loved and will never be forgotten."
