His daughter Chloe said: “Never take anything for granted.
“You are a king and you will forever be my best friend and my absolute inspiration. I am so lost. I refuse to accept it.
“I know you’ve grown your wings now I just want to see you.
“Please be looking down because it’s time to make you proud now and trust me I’ll do that for you. Can’t believe I’m writing this.”
Niece Shauna Ruane Holmes added: “Words cannot express the sadness that comes along with your loss and no one could’ve prepared our family for such news!
“The pain everyone feels is surreal and hearing the weeps of our loved ones is heartbreaking. No son should ever pass before his parents and your children shouldn’t have to say goodbye so soon.
“You will forever be remembered for the funny, wild, and wonderful person you’ve always been! Always the atmosphere of every party and such an annoying wind up!
