A statement said: “While he will be remembered as the wonderful, caring man and kind soul who would do anything to help anyone in need, he’ll mostly be remembered for his witty sarcasm, loyalty, intelligence, and perfectionism.

“He was captivating and hilarious to be around, and there was never a dull moment in his presence. His dedication, passion and love is unmatched. He was an incredible personality who was taken way too soon. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.”
