Fifty-nine-year-old Mr Adair was found dead on scrubland near a Tesco supermarket in the resort on July 3 last year.

The family said: “We are so numb and trying to process this loss is unbearably painful.

“Charlie was one of seven children – he has an older brother and five younger sisters.

"He was also a father and grandad and he was a soulmate and partner.

"Charlie loved his family so much and just loved being a grandad. We were so close, he was our world and we were his. He was our strength and he loved us with a passion. We all miss him so deeply and it is unbearable.

“Charlie was funny without even realising it which was part of his charm. He was the life and soul of the party and loved telling his stories regardless of who was listening and this always ended up with us doubled up laughing.

“Charlie was taken from us so cruelly and we are left to suffer this tremendous loss. The future is daunting and any road to healing is a long one.”
