Mr Williams leaves his wife of 40 years Patricia and daughters Julie, Claire and Mandy and her grandchildren Alex, Anna, Dani, Cian and Mili.

Mr Williams was the proprietor of local taxi company K-Tax and was still involved in running the company.

His family has paid tribute to him, saying: “Gareth lived life to the full. He was very sociable with many friends.

“He was the head of our family who adored his grand-children and we will cherish all the good times and memories he gave us. We are devastated by our loss.”

Mr Williams’ family has asked that their privacy be respected so they can be left alone to come to terms with their loss.
