The family and friends of Paul Gallihawk have released several tributes following the discovery of his body this morning at Leysdown Lakes. 

A statement from Paul’s dad Malcolm, mum Linda and brother Nick:
‘Words cannot express how we feel and what Paul meant not only to us but to all of his family and friends. Paul was a brilliant son and brother to Nick – he would do anything to help anyone and would always put them first. He had such a caring nature and will be sadly missed by all the family, extended family and friends.’
Nick adds: ‘Paul was the most caring brother and best friend I could have ever asked for.’
A statement from Paul’s girlfriend Hayley:
‘Paul and I had been together for five years and he was the most amazing and thoughtful partner. He was incredible in every way and he always put others before himself. I loved him to bits and always will.’
A statement from Paul’s friends:
‘Many of us have known Paul since we went to school together and we are all completely heartbroken. He was a genuine and honest man – he was the funniest person in the world, without being funny.
‘Paul was a Tottenham fan and had recently set up and managed Whitehawks FC. It had only been running a short while but Paul was main reason the team managed to win the league and the cup.
‘He was always positive, doing good for others. He was more of a brother than a friend.
‘As part of his triathlon, Paul had a Justgiving page – this was what he was all about – and it has continued to receive donations since he was last seen on Saturday.’
Funeral details will be shared with family and friends in due course. Those close to Paul have asked they be given space during this difficult time.
