“He was just so excited about it.

“Karl was planning everything with me. He loved children.”

Miss Fox said Karl had been having headaches before he collapsed but had never had a fit.

She described trying to help Karl on the day he collapsed at their home.

“It was really sudden,” she said. “I heard banging noises.

I didn’t think anything of it at first. I went upstairs and as I got to the t op of the stairs Karl said ‘my head, my head’. He was already on the floor but then just started convulsing.”

Tributes to the popular character poured in after the former Copleston and Stoke High School student died.

Earl Gillis, 44, of Paper Mill Lane, Bramford, said: “Karl was popular with everybody. He was known in every pub in Ipswich. He was just a very, very loved man and will be sadly missed.”
