FRIENDS, family and members of the public have all shown their support after the death of a much-loved Drumchapel man.

Young dad Stephen Colquhoun, known as “Stef”, passed away in his home on Monday, October 14.

His loved ones have paid tribute across social media including his heartbroken partner Nicole.

She wrote: “You have broken my heart in the worst possible way I could have ever imagined. I hope wherever you are you’re still dreaming about me and I promise I will always remind Lucas how class his dad really was ... I love you so much, always and forever.

“To think we were trying for a baby, saving for a new house and speaking about getting engaged to have it all ripped away from me in the worst possible way within the blink of an eye, it really does kill me inside. I can’t stop thinking about you. Where do I go from here?”

More than 60 people have donated to a GoFundMe page set up to help Stephen’s family give him the “send-off he deserves” – raising more than £2,000.

Organiser Lisa Fisher said: “As we can all see, Stephen was a popular young man. Stephen was always a fun-loving caring guy and will be missed more than he will ever know.

“As you can all imagine, the pain his mum and family are going through is horrendous. I’ve had permission from the family to start this page and raise what we can to give Stephen the send-off he deserves.

“Fly high Stephen we are jealous of the angels as they have one amazing guy with them.”

People expressed their sadness at the news on Twitter.

One said: “Drumchapel lost another one far too early. Fly high mate.”

Another wrote: “Tell ye somethin, what a s**t year 2019 has been. Drumchapel has lost plenty of good people.”

And one person urged “anyone struggling” to open up.

They said: “Too many young guys in Drumchapel losing their lives within the past few years. If anyone is struggling then open up to your family/friends or even organisations like @MenScotland before it’s too late.”
