Paying tribute to him, his family said: “Mike was a great young man with a big heart who will be deeply missed by all his family and friends.
“He was fondly known as “Tuns” to his many friends and family due to his fun personality, and things were certainly never dull when Tuns was around.
“Our lives will never be the same again without him and a huge hole has been left in our hearts.
“We would like to thank all the emergency services involved and members of the public who helped Mike on this tragic day, we will be forever thankful.”
His daughters Jessica, aged 21 and Megan, aged 16, added: “We are heartbroken at losing our Dad. He was an amazing Dad and we loved him dearly. He will always be in our hearts.”
