THE family of 24-year-old Joseph Kent have released a touching tribute to him following his death on Tuesday.

The tribute, written by his brother Matt, said: “We have lost a perfect son, husband, brother, grandson, nephew, son-in-law, brother-in-law and friend, Joe ‘Willis’ Kent.

“I can’t really put into words how much we as a family appreciate everyone’s comments, messages and support.

“The amount of people who came to see Joe and sent best wishes have been nothing short of phenomenal. I don’t think it’s really hit me or sunk in yet.

“Joe was the most amazing brother anyone could have asked for. He’s been there for me through everything and I, like everyone else, will miss him always and always.

“I will do my best to reply to as many of the messages we have received as I can, but I personally want to thank everyone who sent a message at this horrible time. If anyone needs me just let me know, because I am here for you just as much as you are here for us, it doesn’t matter whether you knew him briefly or your whole life.

“I spent the night with some fantastic people reminiscing and telling stories and it has helped so much - a huge thank you to everyone.

“I will miss and love you Broseph always and always.”

Joe died at Milton Keynes Hospital on Tuesday after an incident in the early hours of Sunday morning by the Xscape building in Milton Keynes
