A man who died in a horror crash near the M40 on Easter Sunday has been named by police.

Father-of-one Sunny Bangar, known by many in his home town of Slough as DJ Bangar, was involved in the crash after he exited the southbound carriageway at J8A, by the Oxford service station.

His brother Vishal said he was on his way home after dropping off his “much-loved” five-year-old daughter Alisha to her mother’s home in Birmingham when the crash happened, “leaving complete turmoil and devastation behind”.

Paying tribute to the “doting” father, his family said: “People from all walks of life have honoured him and his charismatic ways, as he always had such an uplifting and positive aura to share.

“His consistent smile and support for others gave many people hope that such individuals existed.

“Much like his father, who sadly passed away two years ago after suffering from cancer, both were so alike in their adoration for their children, kindred hearts, and bringing so much joy to others.

“Sunny’s passion for music ran through every vessel of his, which made his hands and feet tap to every beat.

“In the music industry, DJ Bangar, was renowned for his musical contributions all over the country and played alongside some famous Bhangra artists.”

Sunny also worked at the O2 head office in Bath Road, in security services.

His family added: “Being front of house ensured his mischievous and loving personality oozed out each and every day with his colleagues and those around him.

“His humour and smile touched so many whilst working there. Unbeknown to Sunny, he was due to receive an award for his contributions to his company with his team.

“Everyone that truly knew Sunny knew that being a doting father, a pillar of strength for his widowed mother and a shoulder to lean on for siblings was of great importance to him.

“His time with his family meant everything. The Bangar family are in complete and utter shock and dealing with their grief privately.

“The support from people all over the country, near and far, has not been unnoticed.

“Sunny was truly loved by all and there will forever be a void in many hearts. In his daughter’s words: ‘DJ Daddy is the best’.”
