The distraught fiancée of Jordon Banton has paid tribute to her ‘inspirational’ partner.
Sarah Nicholson and Jordon were together for six years and had been friends for a long time before getting together.
Sarah said: “Nothing I can say will make anyone see what me and Jordon had.
“My fiancée, my best friend, my absolute world. The best daddy in the world.
“Ryley, Dontai and Daiton will never be the same. Our family was perfect.
“Everything I do from now is for Jordon and I’m going to make him so proud.
“Keep watching over us baby, we will be together forever.”
Sarah said Jordon was an “incredible” father.
She added: “He was absolutely everything to me. I couldn’t ask for a better dad to the boys.
“My oldest son was Jordon’s stepson and he brought him up as his own since he was three years old.
“He was an inspiration to have as a partner. We were all so close, it’s so hard to explain to someone what we had.
“My life will never be the same, every day will be for my children, I’ll never be happy again.
“Ryley can’t talk about it because he is so heartbroken.”
Jordon and Sarah’s three-year-old son Dontai said: “My daddy is asleep in the sky. We love you daddyman.”
Joshua Banton, 25, has paid tribute to his brother.
He said: “What’s Theo going to do without his uncle Jordon?
“He misses you so much already bro and so do I. I didn’t see or speak to you every day but I knew my little brother was always there for me when ever I needed him.
“I’ll see you again one day, Jord. Sleep tight. Love, your brother Josh.”
A close friend of the family, Atal Hinds, said: “I’m missing you bro. Life won’t be the same without you. I’ll see you again soon. I’ll make sure the kids and family are safe. Rest in peace Jordon Banton. You will never be forgotten.”
