hey said: “Our hearts are very sore at Premiair Refrigeration and Air Conditioning as we mourn the loss of our much-loved colleague and friend Jack Edgar.

“Such a kind and gentle boy who never once complained about anything, he just got on with it.

“He was good-looking and just had a beautiful energy, he was quite shy and could be easily embarrassed, but that was Jack and he would just laugh it off.

“He had passed his driving test earlier this year and was so proud to be given his own van to go out to work on his own.

“We were delighted to see him pushing on and pursuing his career as a Refrigeration and Air Conditioning engineer.

“I remember him beaming with pride each time he brought in a job sheet from a job he’d completed alone.

He had just recently passed a number of exams in his final year and again he was so proud, as were we.

“He was a brilliant engineer and a highly valued member of our team.

“Everyone loved Jack, he was one of a kind, we do have many fond memories of him and we will keep them in our hearts forever.

“Thank you Jack for being you, many hearts are broken right now and you will never be forgotten. We love you
