A devastated family today paid tribute to a former Aberdeen boxer who died last week.
Robert Reid, 26, was found dead in a flat in Mastrick’s Arnage Place at around 5am on Wednesday.
Darren Barnes, known as Riley, appeared in private at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Friday in connection with the death of 26-year-old Robert.
He is facing a charge of murder.
In a statement, Robert’s family said: “Robert was a much loved husband, father, son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin to many.
“We are devastated that his children will have to grow up without their father and that his life has ended so soon.
“He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him and we would ask that we are left in private to grieve at this extremely difficult time.”
