FRIEND of many, enemy of none.

This was just one of the touching tributes to Paolo Sicorello as hundreds came to say their last goodbyes at his funeral today (Thursday).

Family members and friends filled St Andrew’s church in Great Linford to pay their final respects to the 34-year-old.

Paolo’s coffin was carried in to the service – filled with around 150 people – by his brothers, close friends and his father, Vince, as hundreds more listened to the service on speakers outside.

Inside the church Alf Sicorello, Phil Espey and Paolo’s nieces Carrie and Sophie gave heartfelt and emotional tributes to their friend, uncle and brother.

After the service Paolo was laid to rest in the churchyard before people were invited to the privately rented Nag’s Head where a marquee was erected in the garden.

Paolo went missing after drinking in the Giffard Park pub on January 9 – just two days before his birthday.

His body was found on Sunday, February 6, after an intensive four week search.
