Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A POP­U­LAR man took his own life, an in­quest has con­cluded.

The body of Sam Bar­rett, 30, from Mac­cles­field, was found at Bux­ton Coun­try Park in the early hours of Jan­uary 4 after a po­lice search.

His fam­ily had re­ported him miss­ing at 5.30pm the day be­fore.

An in­quest at Ch­ester­field coroner’s court recorded a ver­dict of sui­cide.

Heart­felt tributes have been paid after the sud­den death of man de­scribed by friends as ‘one of a kind’.

Sam worked as a plas­terer.

An obituary no­tice in the Ex­press at the time of his death de­scribed Sam as ‘dearly loved’ who will be ‘missed all his fam­ily and friends’.

Friends used Face­book to pay trib­ute call­ing ‘a truly great lad’ and ‘one of a kind’.

In the wake of Sam’s death his fam­ily launched a fundrais­ing drive via just­giv­ing.com/ fundrais­ing/SamBar­rett-86 to sup­port PAPYRUS the char­ity for the preven­tion of young sui­cide. The ap­peal raised £2,730.

PAPYRUS op­er­ate a freep­hone ser­vice staffed by pro­fes­sion­als pro­vid­ing ad­vice and sup­port via 0800 068 41 41.
