Romany took to social media over the weekend to remember her brother. She said: "What's on my mind?...
"I don't think I've begun to process the enormity of what life without my baby brother will be like.
"But I know that he was loved- by so many of us. And I know he would want his life to be celebrated."
Rye's girlfriend, Bonnie Cuthbert has also spoken out on social media in memory of her brother. She said: "My heart and whole body is in agony, every second of every day knowing that I can't wake up next to your cheesy grin and big squeezes anymore."
Bonnie will be bringing home his remains.
