21-year-old Ellis Overy's motorbike was involved in a collision with a car on the A26 Tonbridge Road in Wateringbury on Sunday.
Ellis’ family have released the following words.
"Ellis loved life and lived it to the full. He was an outstanding chef, always looking to learn new skills and to better himself to work in the best restaurants and was aiming to get a Michelin star.
"He worked hard and long shifts but always tried to be there for his family, partner and friends. He certainly knew how to party and will be remembered for his legendary house parties much to his poor mums distress in the morning cleaning up afterwards. On a rare night off, he could be found clubbing in town with his many friends.
"Music was Ellis’ passion and he loved rock music, especially the Foo Fighters who’s logo he had tattooed on his arm. He loved to travel to various muddy fields to listen to great sounds and attended lots of live concerts around the country.
"Ellis loved his bike and was at his happiest riding with his group of friends. He never missed a ‘May Day run’. On more than one occasion a motorbike appeared in the kitchen because it needed some work done on it or needed a proper clean in the sink.
"Ellis will always be remembered as a kind, caring, loving, conscientious and thoughtful young man who will be greatly missed by his parents, brothers, partner, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends and everyone that knew him.
