Darren Hampson passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at their Harworth home after a long battle with cancer.
He is survived by his widow Kirsty Hampson and four children, Ellie 16, Fay 14, Sarah 10 and Lewis 4.
A Gofundme page was created to help funeral expenses and the family buy a memorial bench and take his ashes to two places he grew up as a child.
Darren was diagnosed with cancer on September 24, 2020 and his devastated family learned he only had a few months to live.
Kirsty’s sister Kerrie said: âIn November 2020 we were told that if he didn’t have chemotherapy Darren would only have a few months with his wife and children. We were also told that if his body could not take the chemotherapy, the doctors would have to stop the treatment and we would only have a few months left with him.

âSo Christmas came early for Darren, Kirsty and the kids. But Darren got really bad and spent months in hospital in Doncaster and Sheffield and a few weeks in St John’s hospice.
“He failed to make memories with his in-laws and sadly passed away on October 21. I would love to help my sister, nieces and nephew give Darren the send he deserves.”
Kirsty’s mother Gaynor King said: âDarren was a fantastic husband and father – he would do anything for anyone. We will miss him so much. He and Kirsty met 17 years ago and fell in love.
âNow she is a widow at 36 with four young children.
âAfter the hospice he was in a lot of pain, but he returned home to be with his family. We covered most of the funeral costs and hope to raise Â£ 1,000 to finish the rest and give the children something to have as a reminder of their father, like a bench in the garden He grew up in Yarmouth and Skegness.
A funeral will be held at Harworth Methodist Church on November 10, followed by cremation at Rosehill Crematorium.
