Ashby man who died at 27 will have memory honoured as part of Light Up A Life ceremony
A man who died aged 27 will have his memory honoured as part of the Light Up A Life ceremony.
Daniel Davey, who suffered from cerebral palsy, died at Scunthorpe General Hospital in 2007 after complications with a feeding tube.
His mother, Julie Bonnett, is among those to have registered for a light to be shone in his memory as part of the annual campaign.
Mrs Bonnett, 51, of Eden Dene, Ashby, said: "It is still very raw about him dying.
"He died suddenly at the hospital and this is my little bit for his memory.
"He is always thought about and, also, I know this is for a good cause.
"It is a beautiful service and I missed it last year because my mother was ill, so I really want to be there this year."
Daniel was born with cerebral palsy and attended St Luke's School in Scunthorpe.
He was an avid football supporter and enjoyed following the fortunes of his favourite teams. His other interests included listening to music.
Mrs Bonnett said: "He had a lot of health problems but he was a very special person. He came over to people as being special.
"He had a lovely smile and loved being around people.
"He loved Liverpool and Scunthorpe United and he loved listening to music."
Light Up A Life is now in its 14th year.
The scheme is organised by Macmillan Cancer Support and Lindsey Lodge Hospice and supported by the Scunthorpe Telegraph and The Foundry Shopping Centre.
For a minimum donation of £5, a light is illuminated on a special tree of remembrance in Scunthorpe town centre to remember a lost loved one.
The tree will be lit at a ceremony on Wednesday, November 14 and nominations are also entered into a book of remembrance.
Mrs Bonnett said she would encourage anyone to be part of the scheme.
She said: "It is such a lovely thing to do and when the lights go on, you focus on them, knowing one is for your son and he is twinkling away.
"It is very emotional and I would recommend it to anyone."
