In a letter addressed to the 24-year-old, his mother Karen and two brothers Aaron and Lee, said: “You are and always will be missed, you were a son, brother, uncle and true friend.
“No words can be written to express our sadness at loosing you and not a day goes by that you are not thought of and missed.
“Days will never be the same without your presence, hearing your voice and seeing your beautiful face and smile. Even though you are gone you are always with us and will forever remain in our hearts with the love you gave us all. We will see you again soon so keep a seat warm for us and keep smiling.
“We will always treasure memories and be blessed to have such a remarkable individual in our lives.”
Ashley’s girlfriend, Chelsea, said: “It’s hard to put into words the heartache and pain you feel when the person you love the most is taken from you. You were not only my partner but my best friend, the most loving and caring man to walk into my life.
“Your beautiful cheeky smile and your loud contagious laugh would light up any room and for that you will be truly missed. I couldn’t have found a better man to have fallen in love with. I am so grateful to have been such a big part of your life and to have been loved by you. You will always be loved and will never be forgotten.”
Chelsea’s parents added: “You came into our lives as the perfect partner for our daughter. You gave us all laughter, humour and love and the whole family fell in love with your personality and kindness. You will be truly missed by us all and it was a great honour to have known you.”
