The family of a Dundee man killed in the street with a crossbow has launched a fundraising appeal to help pay for his funeral.
Gordon Diduca was involved in the tragedy in Arklay Street at the Dundonald Court flats block on Sunday evening.
The 24-year-old’s death is the second tragedy to have hit the family this year.
In May, Gordon’s mum Janice passed away after a fight with cancer. At the time he told the Tele: “The cancer came out of nowhere.”
Now the family face another funeral bill and are asking for help to give Gordon “a send off he deserves”.
Looking to raise £500 to cover costs, the Crowdfunding page states: “Our family all pitched in for our mums funeral and [we are] left 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.”
Other tributes were paid to the popular labourer by pals on social media.
Liam McKnight said: “Can’t believe the news bro going to miss you my brother rest in peace.”
Nicole Mill posted: “Gordon you were one in a million. Can’t believe you’re gone. You had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone.”
While brother Ryan Diduca added: “Can’t believe it. Man I’ll miss you loads bro. Take care up there”
