HUNDREDS of people descended on Irvine Beach Park this weekend to say a final farewell to tragic Bryan Kirk.

More than 1,000 of Bryan’s friends and family took to the scenic spot to release balloons and lanterns in memory of the dad-of-two who died last month.

The 38-year-old vanished on Boxing Day after leaving the house at around 12.30pm, telling friends and family he was ‘going to a party’.

Tragically his body was found on the morning of December 30 after four days of desperate searching.

Despite extensive tests, police say his death is still being treated as ‘unexplained’ and further tests are being carried out after the post mortem failed to prove exactly how he died.

Since the news of his death broke, tributes have been pouring in to his social media page led by his two daughters Brogan, 17, and 13-year-old Tiegyn who have been left devastated by his death.

The girls organised the balloon release and on Friday they, along with hundreds of Bryan’s family and friends got together to remember him.

The Beach Park car park was packed with vehicles as Bryan’s many friends from the Car Cruise community.

Brogyn said the night was a fitting tribute to a special man.

She added: “He attended cruises such as street culture and was always buying fancy cars. He had his own recovery truck business, Kirk-tow services.

“It just shows how much he was loved.”
