Gavin Dallow, 53, was holidaying with his wife, Lisa Dallow, and her daughter, 15-year-old Zoe Hosking, when the volcano erupted in December.

Mr Dallow and Zoe were killed, while Mrs Dallow survived and was flown back to Australia with critical burns to more than half of her body.

She remains in a critical but stable condition in Melbourne’s Prince Alfred hospital.

In a statement released after his death, Mr Dallow’s family remembered him as “a wonderful son and brother”.

“We’ll miss him at the cricket and we’ll miss him at the football,” a statement read.

“He was a generous man, always helping his family and his community.”
