The exact cause of his death has not yet been established but he suffered from asthma and Crohn’s disease.

Malcolm lived with wife Christine at North Baddesley.

His mother Dot Tuck said: “He’d travel the length and breadth of the country with his mates to watch Saints’ away matches.”

The funeral service will be held at Southampton Crematorium on Monday.

His family is hoping his ashes can be placed in the ground at St Mary’s Stadium on July 23 which would have been his 44th birthday and his 12th wedding anniversary.
