A Rave to Re­mem­ber will be held to cel­e­brate the life of a young Ruther­glen man who died sud­denly last week.

Mark Sco­bie, 26, was found dead at his home in the Farme Cross area on Thursday af­ter re­port­edly tak­ing his own life.

A club night has been planned at Fin­nieston’s Po­etry Club in SWG3 to hon­our mu­sic lover Mark and raise funds for his girl­friend Eilidh and 17-month-old daugh­ter Heather.

A Rave To Re­mem­ber or­gan­ised by Mark’s friends - will be held on May 26.

Mark’s girl­friend Eilidh re­mem­bers him as the “ab­so­lute life and soul of ev­ery party” and said the event would be the most “fitting way to re­mem­ber” him.

She said: “He was a cham­pion two step­per and an ob­nox­ious aux cord hog­ger and there’s noth­ing more that I’d love than to disco winch him for­ever.

“If you are look­ing for a place to re­mem­ber him in his nat­u­ral habi­tat then this is the place to do it.

“Thank you so much for or­gan­is­ing this for him. He is so, so missed by ev­ery­one who knew him.”

Eilidh, 22, led the dozens of trib­utes paid to Mark on so­cial me­dia.

Friend Re­becca Mur­ray, who set up a Just Giv­ing Page to raise funds for Eilidh and Heather said: “Mark Sco­bie - some­one who would do any­thing for any­one, made us laugh, smile and bright­ened ev­ery­one’s day!

“He had an in­fec­tious per­son­al­ity and was full of life! Not only a friend to ev­ery­one he met, he en­cour­aged ev­ery­one he knew to be the best per­son they can be and to en­joy each day to the fullest.

“We all have such trea­sured mem­o­ries with him - mem­o­ries which we all cher­ish; places we worked or so­cialised will never be the same again.”

A pop­u­lar shop man­ager, Mark was also hon­oured by his for­mer Scor­datura band­mate and close friend Tam Mo­ran, who broke the news of his death to friends.

Writ­ing on Face­book, he said: “Yes­ter­day I was given prob­a­bly the worst news I could ever have been given.

“Words can’t de­scribe the feel­ings that are go­ing through mine and ev­ery­one else’s heads just now.

“Prob­a­bly one of the most kind-hearted and self­less peo­ple I knew.

“He al­ways made sure you were hav­ing a good time and that you had the big­gest smile on your face.

“The world is go­ing to be a dif­fer­ent place without you man.”
