Mr McGladrigan was a full-time quality service leader at Chop Grill and Bar in the Sandman Signature Hotel, Aberdeen, where he had worked since it opened last year.
A spokeswoman for the restaurant previously said: “We are incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of Anthony. He was an amazing and invaluable team member who had been part of the Chop Grill and Bar journey from the beginning.
“Anthony was a hugely well-liked guy, always smiling and fantastic with guests as well as a brilliant colleague. He is going to be such a huge miss to everyone here.
“We would like to send our most sincere condolences to his loved ones and will be offering support to the rest of the team wherever it is needed.”

Another said: “He was a pleasure to work with and always gave us guys in the kitchen a giggle when he’d come in ranting about something or other. He was a real gem and will be so missed. Thoughts are with the family.”
