A young dad who suddenly died in his sleep has been described as the ‘funniest guy ever’ by heartbroken friends and family.

Jack Grozier, 23, was found dead at his home in New Cumnock, Ayrshire Scotland last Thursday and leaves behind his girlfriend, Samantha Kelly, and one-year-old son, Harris.

Jack was due to start a new job delivering packages for Yodel after previously working as a bricklayer and as a garbage man.

He was also an avid Rangers fan and had planned to travel to Liverpool for the Champions League clash next week.

The young dad played football (soccer) himself for amateur clubs across Ayrshire including Cumnock Juniors Youth, Catrine AFC, Mauchline United AFC and his hometown club New Cumnock Community FC.

Heartfelt tributes have been paid to Jack following his passing.

More from the Irish Mirror:

Samantha, who lives in Coylton with Harris, revealed her and Jack had been planning for the future together, and even talked about getting engaged and going on holiday.

“I never imagined my life without him. He’ll be missed so much,” she said.

“It was my first serious relationship, I was obsessed with him from the get-go. He was such a big dafty, I’m such a worrier about things and he just didn’t have a care in the world, he kept me calm.”

“Jack just loved to make everybody laugh – there is nothing he wouldn’t do for his pals or his family. We just had the best time together.”

Big sister Kerry Alexander (Grozier) added: “We’re all lost for words and devastated. Jack was loving, but he was 100 mile an hour all the time.

“He was just my annoying wee brother, he is going to be huge loss to our family. With there being such an age gap, I got the brunt of the babysitting duties. But he did his fair share in return when I had my children.”

“He was a great uncle, he absolutely adored his nieces. When he announced he was pregnant with his partner Sam I was over the moon for him. He was so excited to be a dad. He was a great dad, he took it like a duck to water. We are so proud of him.”

A fundraising campaign has been created on GoFundMe to help Jack’s family with his funeral expenses.
