The family of a doctor killed while riding his motorbike on the A3 between Esher and Hook last month have paid tribute to their relative.

Dr Rajesh Parkash, 43, from Sunningdale, Berkshire, died on the A3 on March 14, after his motorbike crashed into an ambulance that was attending a fatality.

The family said: “Raj was an exceptional person to everyone who knew him – a doting father, a loving son and brother and a kind-hearted friend.

“As a leading practitioner and tutor of dental implantology he was a devoted professional at the top of his field.

“Words cannot describe the impact he made on the people that he touched – his humour, intelligence, encyclopaedic knowledge and musical talent are just a few qualities that made Raj so amazing.

“Most of all it was the love that he gave, and friendship shared, with everyone around him.

“Raj will be missed so much and his exceptional qualities will inspire his two beautiful children and everyone who knew him.

“The family would like to thank all of those who have given their love and support.

“In addition we thank the emergency services who have assisted us at this difficult time.”
