A popular solicitor has ridden into the sunset with an escort of Harley Davidson motorcycles.
City lawyer Roger Page’s hearse was accompanied by six outriders at his funeral in front of well over 100 mourners at Weston Mill Crematorium.
Mr Page, who died unexpectedly aged 64, was honoured by Plymouth’s legal community, including lawyers, barristers, police, Crown Prosecution Service staff and His Honour Judge Robert Linford.
His coffin was carried by six of his closest biker friends and mourners also included fellow hockey players and old university mates.
Mr Page, who lived in Hooe, had worked in criminal law for city solicitors Woollcombe Yonge since 2001. He was working up until his death.
Managing partner Tracey Baker said: “He had been with us for 17 years and was a valued member of our team and very much missed.
“As a work colleague who I have known personally since my qualification some 30 years ago he was an exceptional advocate, fair to all and held in very high regard by those he represented and his professional colleagues.
“He had a wicked sense of humour”.
Mr Page was born in Derby and graduated from Cardiff University. He practiced in Penzance before moving to Plymouth and worked for the CPS for a period of time before moving over to private practice.
Mrs Baker said he was a keen and talented hockey player. He had also over recent years developed a keen interest in motor cycles and attended charity rallies.
Phil Thorneycroft, a partner in city law firm Wolferstans, paid tribute to Mr Page at the funeral.
The solicitor said he was an exceptional individual – one of a kind – “who will be missed by all who had the privilege of having met and worked with him”.
