The funeral of golf caddie Neil Fyfe, who died in a road accident in New York on May 2, takes place next week.
It happened when the 28-year-old was cycling home from his work at Sebonack Golf Club on Long Island when he was struck by a 4×4 vehicle.
Driver Jesse Steudte, of New York, was later charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol.
Mr Fyfe, who is originally from Aberdeen, is survived by his partner Jen, parents Stephen and Jennifer, and sister Angela.
Sebonack caddie master Jason Bunge, who worked with Mr Fyfe since 2012, said: “His infectious personality and clear joy in his life made being near him a pleasure.
“It’s rare these days to find someone who is actually living his dream and not just faking it. In 18 years of working at some of the top US courses, I have never met a man that wanted to be around the game more.”
Mr Fyfe, who dreamed of working on the PGA golf tour, had carried for the likes of Keegan Bradley, Dustin Johnston and basketball legend Michael Jordan.
Former world number one Luke Donald sent his condolences to the 28-year-old’s family and said: “So sad. Neil was a top guy.”
His funeral will be held in the west chapel of Aberdeen Crematorium at 2.55pm on Tuesday.
His family have requested family flowers only, with donations, in lieu of flowers, at the chapel, to the Paul Lawrie Foundation.
