He was a father-of-three who loved a natter and was eager to help anyone he could.
And now tribute has been paid to Peter Wragg, of Sheringham, who has died aged 66.
Originally from Hinckley in Leicestershire, Mr Wragg moved to Cliff Road in Sheringham several years ago after being a regular visitor his whole life.
Millie Wragg, 20, said of her father: "He was a special man who can never be forgotten. We always had a laugh and he would help anyone.
"He was such a loving person."

Miss Wragg said Peter was always up there with his dogs, Labrador Tommy and Lhasa apso Bob.
She said many people would recognise him as simply "the man from the golf".
Miss Wragg said: "He really enjoyed seeing everyone and talking to them, and he spoke to everyone he saw.
"He knew all the dog walkers and their dogs' names as well - he knew everyone."
Mr Wragg was a supporter of Macmillan Cancer Support's north Norfolk branch, and he would regularly help them get set up at fundraising events, using his van to transport their gear.
He also volunteered for the group Seal and Shore Watch, taking rescued seals to the East Winch Wildlife Centre in his van.
Mr Wragg was also father to Fern, 21, and Philippa Wragg, 33.
Miss Wragg said he loved being on the north Norfolk coast, with all of its nature and wildlife.
She said: "He used to go crabbing and fishing on the fishing boats in Sheringham in his late teens.
"We've always had a holiday home down there as well.
"He loved bird watching, and he used to go up to Cley and Beeston Bump to look at the birds. He always knew what they were."
Mr Wragg's funeral will take place at Cromer Crematorium on Friday, February 7 at 1pm.
