Friends and family have paid tribute to a father-of-three found dead.


Paul Pearson, 28, died suddenly at home during Sunday (14 July).

His family are now trying to raise £5,000 to help ensure the 28-year-old has a ‘wonderful funeral’.

Funds will also go towards ensuring his three children, Poppy-May, Roman and Anastasia have the best future possible.

Paul’s father, John Paul Pearson, said: “Rest in peace son. You was my best and my life will be empty without you.

“I would also like to thank everyone for their support and kind words.

“Thank you it means everything to me.”

Paul worked as a doorman at various venues in the city.
