Another, who requested to not be named, described on Monday how she and her husband desperately tried to save lots of the pensioner’s life.

She stated: ‘Patrick was on his side in the living room and my husband moved him on to his back. I was giving him chest compressions and my husband was trying mouth to mouth. We can only assume he had a heart attack. He was a lovely man, always polite and friendly.’

A good friend of the household described Mr Marron as a ‘lovely man who would help anyone’.
