They said in a statement: “Harry is a fun-loving son and brother where family time was always precious – making memories on holidays, snowmobiling in Lapland, parasailing and riding the biggest and scariest rollercoasters in America.
“Harry was always having fun with his younger brother Alfie who he absolutely idolised and loved dearly, their bond was unbreakable.
“Harry worked hard and enjoyed working alongside his dad as a carpet fitter on occasions, he always took pride in his work; he loved expressing to us whenever he received a tip from a customer.
“You will always be in our thoughts.”
