A different kind of tribute to a motorbike-loving toddler from Leamington

BIKERS in Leamington are being urged to rev their engines in memory of a young motorbike enthusiast.

Toddler Romeo Teixeira died last month following a battle with a brain tumour.

The three-year-old shared his dad Leandro’s love of motorbikes and liked to help him fix them.

And Romeo’s parents – who live in Leamington – are asking bikers to grant him ‘his last wish’.

In a heartfelt plea on Facebook he said: “I want the sound of bikes loud enough for the heavens to hear.”

He added everyone who had been following or supporting Romeo’s treatment journey were welcome to attend the funeral.

The couple, who are also parents to baby Cristiano, were full time carers for Romeo who was undergoing intensive treatment.

They set up a fundraiser earlier in the year to support them in their time of need.

The funeral will take place at St Mary’s Church in Leamington on January 23 at 1pm.

Riders can be part of the procession which will travel from the church to Leamington cemetery and can also ride to the wake at St Patrick’s Irish Club in Adelaide Road.
