Remembering Stephen Shrimpton: Family Seeks Support in Wake of Tragic Accident
Stephen Shrimpton, a dedicated school coach driver, tragically lost his life in a motorway crash on the M53 in Wirral. The incident, which also claimed the life of passenger Jessica Baker, 15, and left several others injured, has left his family in grief.
Mr. Shrimpton, 40, was remembered as a “loving husband and father” by his family. They revealed that he had suffered a medical issue while driving, emphasizing his caring and selfless nature. He was always ready to prioritize others over himself.
In the wake of this devastating loss, Mr. Shrimpton’s family has set up a GoFundMe fundraiser to support his funeral arrangements. The family is deeply appreciative of any assistance during this challenging time and has requested privacy to mourn their beloved Stephen.
Stephen Shrimpton’s impact extended beyond his role as a coach driver. He volunteered at the Port Grocery food bank in Ellesmere Port and later became a full-time staff member during the COVID-19 pandemic. His dedication helped provide food to over 700 people in need during those challenging times.
Colleagues at the food bank fondly remembered him as a compassionate and willing helper who had a gift for conversation. His loss is deeply felt, and he is regarded as a valued member of their family team.
The tragic incident on the M53 involved a coach carrying more than 50 students from West Kirby Grammar School and Calday Grange Grammar School. While investigations are ongoing to determine the cause of the accident, post-mortem examinations are planned for next week.
Pupils, parents, and the community have been leaving heartfelt messages around a tribute tree set up at Jessica’s school. The incident has had a profound impact on the entire area, and support is being provided to those affected, particularly the children.
Authorities have appealed to the public to avoid speculating about the incident or sharing potentially distressing information or images out of consideration for the families and individuals involved.
