The body of a man recovered from the Mourne Mountains on Tuesday was that of Portadown dad-of-three Gareth Prideaux.
Mr Prideaux had been reported missing, prompting a large-scale search, which sadly ended in tragedy on Tuesday night.
The Mourne Mountain Rescue Team, following a request for assistance from the police, sent 12 members into the mountain, near Annalong, around 7pm. The operation was stood down just after 11pm.
The 41-year-old, from Glendinning Way in Portadown, was the devoted husband of Julie-Anne and a treasured father of Ashton, Tom and Jamie-Lee.
The home house strictly private. Family and friends will be made most welcome at Milne’s Funeral Home on Saturday 4pm – 6pm.
Funeral service on Wednesday at 12.30pm in Thomas Street Methodist Church, followed by a private cremation.
