ANOTHER little boy has been left without a dad after a horror crash.
James Rawlinson, six, lost dad Carl in an accident which claimed the lives of three young Huddersfield men.
And, like four-month-old Drew McKenzie, James will grow up without a father.
The family of Carl, the oldest of the three victims of the Oldham death crash, today paid him a moving tribute.
Taya Rawlinson described her brother as "a great lad, a doting father and a wonderful uncle" as the family prepared for his funeral.
Carl, 26, of Sheepridge, was one of three friends killed in an horrific crash on the A62 at Scouthead, near Oldham, exactly a week ago.
The other two victims were Paul McKenzie, 22, of Marsh, and Ross Neill, 25, of Slaithwaite.
Two other young men were badly hurt and are still in hospital.
Carl lived with his sister, Leanne, and also has an older brother, Brian.
Taya, of Huddersfield, said: "Carl was a man with so many friends, both in Huddersfield and Marsden.
"James lives with his mum, Kim, in Marsden. Although she and Carl were not together they were friends.
"Carl doted on James and he is the spitting image of how Carl was at that age. Carl loved his football and he used to love kicking a ball about with James.
"It's so hard trying to get used to the fact that he has gone."
Carl was brought up in Huddersfield and lived in Sheepridge before the family moved to Marsden when he was nine.
He went to Marsden Junior School and later Colne Valley High School at Linthwaite and All Saints High School at Bradley Bar.
When Carl left school at 16, he became a carpet fitter.
His big passion was football and he played for Marsden and, latterly, for Hade Edge.
Taya said: "He hardly ever missed a game. He lived for his football. He was a mad-keen Arsenal supporter and we hope he can be buried in his Arsenal shirt."
Carl's funeral will be at 9.30am on Monday at Our Lady of Lourdes RC Church in Sheepridge.
It will be followed by burial at Slaithwaite Cemetery.
* A funeral for one of the Oldham death-crash victims was going ahead today to the sound of church bells.
A team of eight bellringers answered a call for help and were at St Bartholomew's Church, Marsden, today for the funeral of 24-year-old Ross Neill.
Mr Neill, of Slaithwaite, was one of three young men killed in the crash on the A62 at Scouthead a week ago.
His family said they wanted the bells of the church to be rung, but many of the regular bellringers were unavailable.
But, after an appeal in the Examiner on Wednesday, eight have come forward.
Church bell-ringer Donald Lodge said: "We have had a wonderful response and we will be able to ring the bells for Ross' funeral, as the family requested."
Funerals for the other two victims take place on Monday.
Carl Rawlinson, 26, of Sheepridge, will be laid to rest at Slaithwaite cemetery after a service at Our Lady of Lourdes RC Church.
And Paul McKenzie, 22, will have a service at Christ Church, Linthwaite.
