1:55pm Wednesday 8th August 2012 in News
TRIBUTES have been paid to 21-year-old Jack Segust who died when a golf buggy crashed at Herefordshire Golf Club at the weekend.
Jack was with his younger brother, 19-year-old Glenn, and a friend at the Wormsley club on Saturday (August 4) when the buggy they were in rolled down an embankment and collided with a tree.
Jack was airlifted to the QE Hospital, Birmingham, but sadly died of head injuries.
Paying tribute, his parents Sue and Phil Segust said: "He was a very active young man and lived for his sport; his passion being rugby.
"He played for Ledbury RFC. Jack was a fitness fanatic and spent many hours at Sixth Sense Gym, as well as playing at weekends for Bartestree Cricket Club.
"When on leave from University Jack worked as a lifeguard at Hereford Leisure Pool and this summer had secured a place with Amey consultancy as a technician, a job he thoroughly enjoyed.
"In his spare time Jack was a member of the Herefordshire Society of Model Engineers and was building his own steam train at home.
"The life and soul of the party, Jack will be sadly missed by all his friends, family and Barney the Beagle."
An inquest into Jack's death is due to be opened and adjourned by the Herefordshire coroner today (August 8).
Police are now working with the local authority to establish what took place at the golf club.
