FAMILY and friends of a much-loved DJ have paid their final tributes after he lost his fight against cancer.

Mallorca Lee, a former pupil of Auchenharvie Academy in Stevenston, passed away on February 4.

In January, the Ultra Sonic founder announced he had just "weeks to live" after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.

The 51-year-old's funeral was held on Friday, February 23 at the Hurlet Crematorium near Barrhead, and hundreds of people turned up to pay their respects.

The service was livestreamed for those unable to attend in person, and an online book of condolence has been set up to allow people to share their memories of the musician.

Friend DJ KID wrote the night before the funeral of how he expected it to be a "highly upsetting" day.

He said: "We say farewell to Mallorca Lee, whose untimely passing at the age of just 51 just four weeks after terminal cancer diagnosis sent shock around the globe.

"Mallorca still had so much more to offer this world, first and foremost as a husband to Maria, as a dad to his children Angel and Oceano and through his talent as a musician and DJ."

He continued: "Last year, when I was going through a rough patch, Mallorca was a great source of encouragement.

"I’ll forever be grateful for him reaching out, giving me some much-needed support and making me laugh about getting a loveseat in my new home.

"This showed the class Mallorca was as a human being."
