The parents of Liam Still, 21, yesterday spoke of their pride in his decision to join the organ donor register before his death – and thanked the friends who have followed his lead.
They are now urging others to make the commitment and join the life-saving register.
The popular footballer, who played for Wroxham FC and Riverside Rovers, was described as “the ideal son” by his parents, Richard and Amanda.
Liam had started a new job just weeks before he crashed his car while driving home on the B1108 Watton Road at Bawburgh in the early hours of Saturday, May 19. He was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, but died from his injuries five days later.
His parents paid tribute to their football-mad son as a generous and big-hearted “people person”, who had a talent for finding the best in everyone.
“He was such a loving boy, and a real big softie,” said Mr Still, 45.
