The 31-year-old’s wife, and mother of his young son, said: "Hizar was the most driven and passionate person I knew. He went above and beyond for his family and friends, everyone who knew him loved him.

"His smile will be greatly missed, the way it lit his face and made his eyes sparkle.

"His cute little laugh and the way he made me feel safe and loved, Hizar was truly one of a kind.

"He accomplished so much in the little time he was given and made the most of life.

"We travelled the world and we created memories, we laughed endlessly and mostly we lived.

"He had so many dreams so much more he wanted to accomplish but his chapter sadly came to an end.

"He is survived by his distraught son who will make daddy proud. I'm writing this while I am clutching his Baccarat smelling hoody and praying I never forget his voice or his smell.

"It was a life well lived, hand on my heart I can truly say he will have had no regrets."
