He died after being involved in a collision with a BMW car in Marine Parade on the afternoon of Wednesday April 15.
Mr Repman, who was known to friends as Kez, was described as a good dad and a talented chef.
His family said: “We loved him unconditionally and he worked hard to be a good person and, above all, a good dad to his three beautiful children: Romeo, Reggie, and Reenie. “He was also a great uncle to his niece, Lacey Jane, who loved her uncle Kerrin very much.

“Kerrin had his problems and went through a lot of physical and emotional pain in his life, but it never stopped him from having a smile on his face. He always brought a smile to ours, too.
“All in all, he was our loveable son and we are all heartbroken. He will be forever missed by his whole family, including his mum, dad, brothers, children, niece, his sister-in-law Sophie and partner Emma, as well as the extended family who are across England and Ireland.”
Police want to speak to 40-year-old Keith McCarthy and 19-year-old Anthony Galvin in connection with Mr Repman’s death. Both men are said to have links to Harwich, Hertfordshire, London and Ireland.
Detectives are also appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or who has dash cam footage which may be relevant to the investigation.
