Steven’s wife, Lisa, paid tribute on her Facebook page yesterday. She said: “Well today I lost the most amazing person in my life, God took him away from me too soon. I will stay strong for my babies, he was an amazing father and my rock - sleep tight baby till we meet again.”

And she appealed to other Facebook users, asking her friends to share our online story in a bid to find out what happened.

Paying tribute, his family said: “Steven will be sadly missed by all that knew him. His mum and dad loved him so much, Steven was their youngest son, their baby.

His brother said his baby brother has now got his angel wings. His children describe their dad as the most amazing, best dad they could ever have and they loved him so much. It all this feels like it is a dream.
