Tributes have been paid to an Angus father of four who died suddenly at home.
Dane Conway, of Lordburn Place, Forfar, was found by his youngest daughter, Trinny, 9, and his family said they are heartbroken at the 46-year-old’s death.
Mr Conway’s stepmother Carol, 66, said: “The kids went out to play and thought their dad was still sleeping.
“At about 2.30pm Trinny went in and said ‘look dad it’s time to wake up now, it’s time you were awake’ and he was lying dead.”
Two of the council worker’s other children, Keelor, 10, and Dayna, 12, were also staying at the house. Their grandfather Brian, 70, said they “have no idea” what happened.
He added: “The night before the kids said he had pains in his chest and indigestion.”
Mr Conway was born in Dundee and attended Ardler Primary School before going to Webster’s High School in Kirriemuir. He drove machinery on farms and then for the council at a landfill site.
His father said Mr Conway’s children were his focus in life, adding: “Family was a big, big thing in his life.”
Mr Conway is also survived by his wife Anne, eldest daughter Jay, and brothers Jeff and Lee.
A police spokesman said a report was filed with the procurator fiscal’s office and that there were no suspicious circumstances.
