Shortly after his death, Ryan’s family and friends raised funds in order to “give him the send-off he truly deserves”.

A JustGiving page raised £681 of the £3,500 target for the father’s send-off.

In a statement, Ryan’s family said: “Words cannot express the level of grief and loss we as a family feel.

"Ryan was very much loved and will be so missed by his family and friends.

“He was a very family orientated man and an amazing father, partner, son and brother. He loved life and lived it to the full.”

A story on the JustGiving page reiterates the loss of his family, friends and children “after Ryan tragically lost his life on a family holiday”.

It added: “Ryan Vincent aged 22 has sadly lost his life in the most tragic way you could ever imagine on a family holiday at Primrose Valley.

“Only four and a half months ago did he become a father to V-Jai, who now has to grow up without knowing his daddy.

“He was the most amazing, caring and loving father you could imagine.

“Not only was he a dad but he was a stepdad to Maddie Rose, who idolised him.

“His and Chloe’s family life had only just begun when this disaster occurred.

“This tragic event has torn many hearts, Vinnie was a son, a brother, a partner and a father. He was loved and forever will be loved by all.”
