TRIBUTES have been paid to a popular 22-year-old man who was found dead at a house in Ellesmere Port.
More than 1,200 people have joined a Facebook group in memory of Arthur Tolley, of Wolverham Road, whose body was discovered at 6.05pm on Monday, April 19.
Police say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.
A fundraiser was organised by his friends at the Wing Half pub on Friday in aid of his family and young daughter.
A Cheshire police spokeswoman said: “Police were called to an address in Cressington Gardens where the body of a 22-year-old was found dead at the scene.
“There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death and a coroner's file is to be prepared.”
One friend on the Facebook site posted a poem which read:
People never knew just how much he meant to me and you
They knew him by name, but it's still not the same
His eyes so bright, his smile so wide
We always let him know we were right there by his side
Now he's gone from me and you
Now we have no reason to be blue
We loved him, he loved us
And we have to try not to fuss
Why does ...God take the best to love
Up to that great big world up above?
His memory will never leave
His kind and gentle smile will always be seen
Never forget him, never let him leave your mind
Tell him you love him, just one more time.
One message said: “Arthur - one of the nicest lads you could wish to meet. Thoughts and sympathy are with all of his friends and family.”
Another user added: “The best has been taken. Just wish u were still here.”
Cheshire Coroners Office confirmed the inquest had been opened on Friday.
