THE father of a young man stabbed to death by road rage murderer Kenneth Noye has died – with a source saying he never recovered from the loss of his son.
Kenneth Cameron, 75, was left grief-stricken following the death of Stephen, 21, in 1996.

He faced further tragedy when wife Toni died in 2016, with the family secretly burying her ashes next to Stephen.
Earlier this month, Mr Cameron died after being rushed to hospital from his retirement home in Ashford, Kent, the Mirror reports.
An inquest will take place in the summer.
A source told the paper Mr Cameron’s devastation over Stephen’s death worsened when his wife died.
“The impact of what Noye did haunted him,” they said.
Stephen was killed in front of his fiancée Danielle Cable, 17.
Noye had previously stabbed undercover detective John Fordham to death in 1985 during the Brink’s-Mat bullion robbery investigation.
He was acquitted of the officer’s murder after claiming self-defence but jailed for 14 years for handling stolen gold and released in 1994.
The villain was still on licence when he stabbed electrician Stephen to death following a row on May 19 1996.
Stephen and Danielle had just left his family’s Swanley home on a trip to London’s Brick Lane to buy bagels.
New driver Danielle was behind the wheel of Stephen’s red Rascal van when it almost collided with Noye’s Land Rover Discovery on a slip road leading to a roundabout where the M20 meets the M25.
Angry Noye got out of his vehicle at the traffic lights and punched 6ft 4in tall Stephen in the eye.
When the younger man began to get the better of Noye in a fight, the vicious gangster went back to his car to grab a knife and stabbed Stephen twice, penetrating his heart and liver, as Danielle looked on in horror.
A witness claimed the sick killer smirked as he walked away from the horror.
Noye then went on the run, becoming Britain’s most wanted man before his arrest two years later when brave Danielle helped identify him in a Spanish restaurant.
It’s like Noye’s walking on Stephen’s grave… I feel sickened
The former cop who led the hunt for Noye said Danielle will be in hiding for the rest of her life.
In 2000, Noye was jailed for life with a minimum term of 16 years before being freed in June 2019.
A year later, he was seen at the interchanged where he stabbed Stephen.
Speaking at the time, Mr Cameron told The Sun: “It’s like Noye’s walking on Stephen’s grave.
“I feel sickened that he has gone back to the place where he took my son’s life.”
He said he felt Noye was “laughing in the face of authority”, adding: “He’s pouring salt on my wounds.”
