Luke Nappin, 34, of The Green, Charlbury, was struck at the junction of The Slade and Ticknell Road in Charlbury on 22 December.

Mr Nappin was described by his family as someone with a "heart of gold" who "loved to make people laugh".

The Oxford-born gardener was a "loving and giving person" his relatives said.

'Forever loved'

A statement released through police said: "Luke was a very sociable person who had so many friends and always liked to stop and chat to people.

"He was also a kind and considerate, loving and giving person.

"Above all Luke was a wonderful son, brother and uncle who will be forever loved and missed by all his family and those that knew him."

The crash happened at about 21:30 GMT. Mr Nappin was taken to Horton General Hospital in Banbury but died from his injuries.
