The family of a Grenfell Tower fire victim say they have been left with a "gaping hole in our hearts that can never be filled", after he was formally identified.
Denis Murphy, 56, is believed to have become trapped on the 14th floor of the burning block when the fire broke out on June 14 this year .
In a statement released through the Metropolitan Police on Wednesday, his family spoke of "an agonising 10 weeks" between the disaster and his formal identification.
The statement said: "The pain, loss and sorrow we feel is indescribable and we have been left devastated with a gaping hole in our hearts that can never be filled.
"To us he was an inspiration and an amazing, selfless, caring person and we feel lucky and blessed that he was part of our family, and his warmth and love will stay with us forever.
"What really matters to us is what he stood for - family, friends, community, loyalty and love - and our lives will never be the same without him."
Mr Murphy's formal identification came ahead of the opening of the latest inquests into victims of the fire in west London that killed at least 80 people.
Westminster coroner Fiona Wilcox will open the cases of Hesham Rahman and Ernie Vital.
Mr Rahman, 57, is said to have last made contact with his family at around 3am when he told them he could smell smoke.
It was reported that Mr Rahman had diabetes, making it difficult for him to walk down stairs.
Mr Vital, 50, lived on the 16th floor with his mother Marjorie, 68, who also died in the tragedy.
