Aldi store manager Tom Sturme said Bryce, who had been a trainee store manager at Aldi, was always smiling and the 'life of the party'.

"Whenever you came to work he always had a smile on his face and he made the day worth it,” he said.

"You knew you were having a good day if he came in, he was a ripper of a bloke.”

Tom said it had been tough but the community had come together and shown their support.

"We are all a big family around here, it has hit us pretty hard,” he said.

"We are doing a bit of fundraising to put a memorial together for him and any little bit helps. There is not much more you can do than support the family and raise funds.
