"There is a whole town in mourning, and the saddest part of all is you probably didn't realise how loved you were," he said.

"Mike will be missed by so many. A son, a brother, an uncle, a partner, a friend, a grandson, and a friendly smile even to those that didn't know him.

"Life wasn't always kind to you Mike, but you showed the world a lot of kindness.

"We all love you."
