Family pay tribute to 'fun loving' family man murdered in a Fenland village
A family have said they are devastated by the loss of a “fun-loving guy” who “enjoyed life to the full”.
It follows the murder of Nigel Ebbage, 35, of Honeysuckle Close, Wimblington, at the end of last week.
A post mortem examination concluded Mr Ebbage died as a result of stab wounds.
He was discovered at a premises in Honeysuckle Close at about noon on Thursday (April 29) and was declared dead shortly afterwards.
In a statement, which his family released together with images of the family man, they said: “We are all devastated and struggling to come to terms with Nigel’s death.
"He was a family man, he loved his children and family and would do anything for them. He was a fun-loving guy, always cracking a joke. He enjoyed life to the full. He loved the outdoors, especially his kayak.”
Mr Ebbage’s family have asked to be left to grieve in private.
Meanwhile, a March man appeared at Huntingdon Magistrates’ Court on Saturday charged with Mr Ebbage’s murder.
Lance Woollard, 64, of Richmond Avenue, March, was remanded in custody and is due to appear again at Cambridge Crown Court today (Monday).
