“It is a testament to him and his kind nature that so many people from all parts of his life past and present have been sending their love during this time.

“He was so full of life, triathlons had become such a passion for him in the last few years, training and competing brought him so much joy. He was talented at many things, sport, music, art, gardening, photography – he always put his all into anything he took on.

“Simon was such a caring, loving person who would make time for anyone who needed him, always willing to help out others. Through his work he has helped local and national charities over the years, providing donations that have helped so many people.

“For someone who could be shy at first, he always came away from places with new friends, he was the kind of person who made those around him happier just by being there.

“Words cannot express how utterly devastating this has been for all of us who knew Simon, the world has truly lost someone who made it a better place to be.”

The family have asked for privacy at this time.
