Amy said: "Scott was just a really funny guy who didn't really have many hobbies but his main thing was spending time with his boys.

"He would take them out, go swimming and just really liked spending time with them.

"That's when he was happiest was when he was at home with them.

"I loved him to bits and I don't think I will ever get over it. The boys don't really understand but they all absolutely loved their daddy.

"I don't know how I am going to cope with everything now.

"I'll just need to get on with things now for the sake of the boys but I don't know how we are going to get by without him around, brightening the place up"

Scott's funeral is due to take place next week at Maryhill Crematorium on Tuesday May 17 at 1:30pm and his family have stipulated that guests should wear bright colours.

In a sweet nod to the doting dad, men attending are all asked to hitch one trouser leg up.

Amy added: "Scott was the bubbliest guy and always made me laugh without fail.

"Walking around with one trouser leg up was just something that Scott always did for some reason and was just one of his ways of making people smile.

"We want people to do that and wear something bright to reflect the fun loving guy we knew."

Family members have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to raise money for the funeral and any funds left over will go to Scott's children.
