Alan Boxall tragically died whilst out riding his bike.

Alan passed away in the early hours of Monday morning (13th May).

Police were alerted to a missing man in the Winterslow area on Sunday night, when Alan didn't return from his bike ride.

Teams, including volunteers from WILSAR, carried out a search of the local area alongside many of Alan's family and friends.

He was found by police dogs but was unable to be revived, and his family say he died from 'coronary artery thrombosis'.

He leaves behind his loving wife Lisa, daughter Stevie-Louise and son Daniel Boxall.

SMILING FACE OF SALISBURY

The 55-year-old father of three was a well-known face around Salisbury, owning Elite Panel Craft in Wilton.

Alan was seen regularly behind the wheel of Doris the campervan, attending events and driving happy couples during their wedding days.

He was a car enthusiast and owned Elite Panel Craft, the bodywork and paint specialists.

The Boxall family were well known to many for their incredible fundraising for Wiltshire Air Ambulance in memory of Jamie Boxall, Alan and Lisa's son and Stevie-Louise and Daniel's brother, who died 12 years ago in a car accident aged just 17.
