Mick Norcross's teenage son Mason has paid an online tribute to the TOWIE star following his funeral today.
The businessman was found hanged in his basement last month at the age of just 57 in circumstances that police described as non-suspicious.
In a post on Instagram, 19-year-old Mason wrote: "To my dad, today is the day we put you to rest.
"I am truly lost for words, you was my everything, I am so grateful for everything you've done for all of us, you was the best dad a boy could ask for.
"You was such a strong man, there was so many things I wanted to say to you.
"I didn't ever think this day would come that I would have to write this."
He continued: "I will try so hard for you dad and I will look after mum and Hollie forever like you always told me to.
"Thank you for teaching me everything you did. There will not be a day that goes by where I won't think about you, you have took a part from me that I will never get back.
"You was one special man and loved by so many. I wish I could thank you for everything you have done for me, you gave me the best 19 years a boy could ever ask for.
"I will love you forever dad until we meet again."
Kirk Norcross, who appeared on TOWIE alongside his father for several years, has yet to comment publicly since Mick's death.
