TRIBUTES have poured in to soldier Matthew Coldwell who was killed in a car crash.
Many have come from friends and student colleagues of the 20-year-old from Rastrick, who was serving with the Yorkshire Regiment.
But one of the most poignant has come from his dad, who used to accompany Matthew to Huddersfield Town games.
He left a message on a tribute website which said: "I"ll remember the good times.
"Matthew, I'm going to miss you so much. I'll miss your texts on a Friday night asking 'Who are Town playing tomorrow? Will you text me the score'.
"The walks down Alder Street and Leeds Road to watch them, when you managed to get back for the weekend.
"Your beautiful smile, your love of animals, the Saturday nights at Phil and Alison's when you, Karl and your mates came and sat with us and had a Chinese but most of all - you.
"You've left a massive void in my life that will never be filled. Matthew I loved you so very very much. You will be in my thoughts every minute of every day and will never ever be forgotten."
Matthew's cousin, Belinda, from Huddersfield, said: "We always had a laugh when we met up and you will be in my heart forever and always.
"We had so many funny times when we were younger, I still can't believe you are gone. You were such a caring person who would do anything for anyone and you really will be missed forever."
Matthew had studied animal care at Huddersfield Technical College before joining the Army, signing up for the former Duke of Wellington's Regiment.
He served in Iraq in 2005 and 2006.
He died in the early hours of Sunday when his Vauxhall Corsa hit a bus stop and tree in Wakefield Road, Copley, Halifax.
