The family of Adrian Fannon, who was found dead at a house in Banbury earlier this month, have paid tribute to their 'ultimate loveable rogue.'
The 39 year old was found dead in a property in Newland Road, Banbury, on October 1.
Police launched a double murder investigation after he and 25-year-old Mark Pawley, both from Banbury, were found with multiple stab wounds.
Our Adrian was the ultimate loveable rogue who took a couple of wrong turns along the way. He had a heart of gold and would help anyone he could.
“He was an affectionate son, brother and uncle. His nephews and nieces meant the world to him, he was so proud of them and he made them laugh, they adored him.
“As siblings there will now always be one sixth of us missing.
“He was loved dearly by the whole family and his passing has left a big hole in all our hearts.”

The maternity unit at Horton General Hospital in Banbury is set to be downgraded following a vote today by Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
Campaigners have been fighting proposed changes with a number of protests held.
In October, the facility became midwife-led due to problems recruiting doctors.
The decision will see the vast majority of expectant mothers travelling 20 miles down the road to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
Vote: All 5 recommendations, including downgrading of maternity unit at Horton, have been passed @itvmeridian
