EMOTIONAL tributes have been paid to the “best dad any daughter could ever wish for” after a Dunfermline postman died after a short illness.

Sean Wallace was just 42 when he passed away earlier this month, and one of his two daughters, Charmaine, said he would be dearly missed.

She said: “My dad was definitely the best dad any daughter could ever wish for. Me and my sister love and miss him so much. His grandchildren, Oscar and Robyn, will grow up knowing what an amazing person my dad was. Until we meet again dad, fly high my angel."

Tributes were also paid to the “much-loved” postal worker from his former colleagues at the Dunfermline delivery office.

Garry Haldane, Communication Workers Union (CWU) rep for the office, commented: “Sean was a much-loved colleague within Royal Mail at Dunfermline delivery office.

"There will be a memorial stone laid at the memorial garden at our work in the New Year which the Co-Op memorial services are providing free of charge in honour of Sean. Sean will be a big loss to the management and staff within Dunfermline delivery office."

Sean, of Craigston Drive, was a dad to two girls, Charmaine and Sinead, and a grandfather to Robyn and Oscar. He died in the early hours of Saturday, December 15. 

Mr Haldane added that Sean was a “loyal Dunfermline Athletic fan and would take his girls to the games whenever he could”.

The club issued a statement, which read: “Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.”
A tribute was read out to fans at Saturday's match with Ayr United at East End Park.
