Mr Moon's widow who did not give her name, described him as "the most amazing husband and father".

"There are no words to describe the loss I feel," she said. "Life will never be the same again.

"Tonight there will be a brighter star in the sky."

His son described him as "my hero and the best father I could've ever asked for", and his daughter said: "I will miss him so much and cherish all the memories we had together."
