A FIREMAN who was stationed at Birmingham International Airport was killed in road crash last week.
Martin Brennan died in the five-vehicle smash, which happened in the Bassetts Pole area on August 4.
The popular 34-year-old had died at the scene of the crash despite the best efforts of passersby to revive him.
Parents Ray and Elizabeth said: “Martin was a well-respected leading firefighter at Birmingham Airport. He was popular and loved by everyone who knew him. He had a real zest for life.
“Everyone who knew him is absolutely stunned and devastated by his death.
“We would like to thank everyone who stopped to help Martin in the time just after the collision.”
Mr Brennan had been heavily involved in raising money for American firefighters who had died in the 9/11 terrorists attacks.
He leaves behind a 15-year-old son, Jordan.
The fatal collision took place at around 4.55pm on the A446, close to the Belfry Golf Course.
