"Our Roy Boy - the most kind-hearted, loved, amazing son, brother and best uncle in the world to his nephew and niece.

"We couldn't be prouder to have a son and a brother like our Roy Boy. He loved life, he loved his family, and he loved horses and his side-kick dog Lewis.

"Our biggest ray of sunshine in our lives – gone, but it's not goodbye, Our Boy, it's see you later Xx

"Roy's family would like to thank everybody that stopped and helped Roy, it means a lot."
