NAZEING: Family pay tribute to "the greatest dad"

The family of a man whose death in Nazeing sparked a murder investigation have described him as a "protective big brother" and "the greatest dad".

Jimmy Moore, 33, died after being assaulted in Palmers Grove at about 7.15am on September 25.

In a statement, his wife said: “Jimmy was the best husband, son and brother but he was the greatest dad to his four children.

“Every Sunday was family day and the children would pick what they wanted to do and that would be done.

“Whatever we wanted was never a ‘no’. Jimmy would say ‘yes’ and get it. None of us ever went without.

“His passion in life was to work hard and enjoy his life with his family.

“We had a holiday booked for Lapland in December and we had our future planned as a family.

“We had the boys’ first football match booked. That Saturday morning he was going to work to then get back for the match - he never missed one.

“He was so proud of all his children and the things they were doing well in.

“I’m hoping I can make his words come true in the future with our children.

“He will be missed by so many but his family will never be the same without him.”

His mum, dad, and sister also paid tribute to him saying: “Jimmy was a man’s man and brother. He had just settled into his new home and was planning a holiday to Lapland.

“He was very hardworking and was a protective big brother – one in a million who we were so proud of.

“He was ready to help bring up his little nephew like his sons and would come to his parents three or four times a day.”

Robert Crabtree, 33, of Palmers Grove, Nazeing, has been charged with murder and possession of an offensive weapon.

He is next due to appear at Chelmsford Crown Court on October 25.

Police are continuing to appeal for anyone who has any information, saw anything or has any CCTV, dashcam or doorbell footage to contact officers via the Essex Police website, or by ringing 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
