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.”
