More than 200 people left messages of support for his family on his brother Rhys John Hamblin’s Facebook page, where he broke the news on Monday that his brother had died.
He thanked them for their support, saying: "Thank you all for your kind messages, really does mean a lot to me and my family. Really appreciate it, it shows Julian (Jacko) was really well liked and loved by you. Really thank you so much."
