The funeral of a man who was allegedly murdered at a block of flats in Dundee is set to take place next week.
Gordon Adams, 24, also known as Gordon Diduca, died following an incident at Dundonald Court on September 24.
His funeral will be held at Dundee Crematorium on Tuesday at 1.15pm — with all friends and family invited to attend.
Gordon’s family — who described him as a “much-loved son of the late Janice” and a “loving grandson, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend to many” — have asked for all those attending to wear bright colours in his memory, and for only family members to send flowers.
Gordon’s death came just months after he lost mum Janice, 48, to cancer which had spread to her liver, spine, kidney, pancreas and lungs.
At the time, Gordon told the Tele: “She was a superhero to the family — she held us together.
“She went through a lot of hard times but wanted the best for us. She was one of the best mums ever.”
Tributes poured in for Gordon in the hours following his death.
One pal said he would be “well and truly missed”, while another friend wrote: “I had so many great memories with you bro, you’re at rest now and will be missed so much. Love yi bro.”
An online crowdfunding appeal set up by his family to cover the costs of his funeral raised £1,220.
The appeal had read: “We are doing this for our brother so he has a send-off he deserves. Our family all pitched in for our mum’s funeral and left us with no choice but to ask for help.
“All is appreciated. He was a young loyal man that just made you laugh. He did have a soft spot.”
Charles Little, 31, appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court earlier this month charged with his murder.
Little, of Dundonald Court, is alleged to have threatened occupants of a flat with a bow and arrow, repeatedly struck the front door and attempted to force entry to the property.
He is further accused of assaulting Gordon and two others, Jason Sinclair and Colin Hughes, threatening them with a bow and arrow and repeatedly firing arrows towards them.
Little is then alleged to have repeatedly struck Gordon on the body with a knife and murdered him, and also struck Mr Sinclair with a knife, assaulting him. The case was fully committed for trial.
