The family of a man who died in a crash in Aberdeenshire has paid tribute to him.

Marek Walowski, 53, was driving on the A947 near Macduff when the crash took place on Sunday evening.

It is understood his car left the road and hit a tree.

Mr Walowski, who lived in Macduff, was described as a keen swimmer who was well known in the community.


In a statement released through police, his family said: “Marek was an honest and content person.

“He was cheerful and well-known in the Turriff and Banff areas – as soon as he walked into Banff Tesco all the workers would shout ‘Czesc’ (‘hello’ in Polish) in his way.

“He also loved to swim and was a regular visitor at Banff Swimming Pool where he was known by everyone.

“Marek will be missed by everyone for his genuine smile, warm words and kindness.”
