Tributes paid to "loyal husband" killed on A303

The family of a man killed on the A303 last Friday have paid tribute to a "loyal husband" and "loving father".

The family of a man killed on the A303 last Friday have paid tribute to a "loyal husband" and "loving father".

Andrzej Szaruta, who was 63, died after being hit by a car, which then failed to stop, near Amesbury last Friday afternoon.

Andy was a Sergeant Major in the Royal Marine Commandos for 22 years, gaining medals for serving in the Falklands War, two tours in Northern Ireland, and a NATO medal during the Bosnian war. 

Upon retiring from the Marines, Andy worked as a facilities and operations director, and lived with his wife and daughter in Bridgwater, Somerset. 

He greatly enjoyed spending time with his family, in particular supporting Christian in his racing career at racing circuits throughout the UK and Europe. 

Prior to the incident, Andy was travelling to London with his wife and daughter to visit his son Christian and his fiancée for the weekend.

Christian had organised a surprise belated birthday day out, a father and son race car experience day, which they never able to enjoy.

Tarkan Agca who is 23 and from Watford, has been charged with Mr Szaruta's murder. 

He is due to appear at Bristol Crown Court on July 26.
