Anglesey: Family of man, 26, who died in farm incident pay tribute

THE FAMILY of a man who died whilst working on a farm on Anglesey have paid tribute to him.

Macauley Owen was 26 years old and tragically died in an incident on a farm in Carreglefn, Amlwch on January 3.

His father, Wil, said: “I am absolutely devastated and broken by Macauley’s death. He was not only my son but my best friend and work partner. He was a fun, happy go lucky young man with a huge passion and love for machinery since a really young age, and I will miss him more than words can describe.”

“I would like to thank everybody who did what they could to help in trying to save Macauley, the members of the public, the attending paramedics and the doctors and nurses at Ysbyty Gwynedd Bangor hospital and Royal Stoke University Hospital.”

“I am still continuing to process these events so would kindly ask for privacy during this difficult time.”

Macauley’s mother, Carys, said: “Words can’t express the sorrow I feel from the loss of Macauley, the longing, the sadness that will never heal and what I would do to hold him in my arms again.

“I am so proud of all his achievements and the man he became. I am proud to be his mum. Shine them tractor lights bright my boy.”

“I would like to thank everyone for their kind tributes. I would also like to thank the paramedics and staff at both Bangor and Stoke hospitals, for the care and compassion they have all shown towards Macauley and our family.”

Macauley’s sister Lucy said: “My heart is broken, my baby brother I will often think of you and be proud of the man that you have become, I will remember your smile and your naughty contagious laugh. Thank you for your kindness, I love you bro.”

Macauley’s ‘nain’ Peggy, said: “My Macauley, the only thing I can think of to ease the pain of losing you is that God wanted you up there as one of his angels to be a tractor driver. Goodnight Macauley, until I see you again soon.”

North Wales Police continues to investigate the circumstances together with the Health and Safety Executive, and are liaising with the local Coroner’s Office.
