The family of a "unique" and "colourful" family man who was killed when he cycled home from work have paid tribute to him.

Nicholas Keeler died after a crash in Radlett Road, Aldenham, in the early hours of Sunday, February 11.

The 44-year-old, who lived in Kings Langley, worked for food delivery company JustEat based in Borehamwood.

The customer service operations advisor was well-known for his eccentric ways of dressing in flares and colourful clothing.

Nephew and best friend, Rob Lloyd, 28, said: "He loved the eighties, he liked his flares and even wore them to work.

“He was colourful there is no doubt about that. He was just unique."

His colleagues at JustEat have held a 'Dress Like Keeler' day in Nicholas' memory.

He had strong environmental beliefs so gave up driving in favour of the bike.

He always cycled to work, a place he often called home, in Borehamwood covering 30 miles in a round trip whatever the weather.

His mum Monique said: “He would go through three or four bikes a year because of the mileage.

“He loved his work and enjoyed being with people.

"Every night when he came home from work he was in a good mood.”

Nicholas was born in Watford and went to Francis Combe School.

A semi-professional golfer, he later worked as a photographer before joining JustEat around five years ago.

As part of his role, he helped train newcomers.

He liked to give back to the community and regularly did litter picks in Kings Langley.

He also enjoyed playing golf and darts.

His mother added: “He always saw a bright future for everyone and despite what has happened, Nick would have wanted everyone to celebrate his life.

“He will be truly missed and we will carry his memory in our hearts forever.”
