The family of a man who was murdered in #Braintree on Sunday have paid tribute to his “heart of gold”.

Scott Gilhooly, 44, sadly died at the Swiss Bell pub on the morning of Sunday 17 May.

His family said: “Scott was many things to so many people – he was a much-loved father, son, brother, uncle and brother-in-law.

“Scott was very community spirited, headstrong and loyal. He made light of everything, made us laugh daily and had a very unique sense of humour.

“He was beloved by the surrounding community, through his charity work and fundraising.

“Scott will leave an enormous void in all our lives.”

A 23-year old local man has been charged with murder and is due to stand trial at Chelmsford Crown Court on 2 November.
