Family of boy murdered in Grays pay moving tribute

THE family of Breck Bednar have paid tribute to him by releasing the following:

“Our family is devastated by the loss of our beloved Breck David LaFave Bednar. He was a kind, intelligent, thoughtful boy with a good sense of humour and was a dedicated student at St. Bede’s School in Redhill and extremely gifted in computing, electronics, and engineering. He was a member of the Air Cadets with the 135 Squadron in Redhill, and a member of St. John the Evangelist C. of E. Church in Caterham.

His three younger siblings knew him as a kind and loving older brother who always helped out by looking after them. The wider family remember him as a well-mannered, social, and confident boy who was always thoughtful and patient with his younger cousins. We are all in shock, and so grateful for the thoughts and prayers of friends and family at this difficult time.

In lieu of flowers and other gifts, a family fund will be established in Breck’s memory to support computer literacy, a cause which was close to his heart. For information on contributing, please email”
