Lewis's Aunt Karen Hughes said her cousin was randomly attacked on the street when he went to get food, Rhyl Journal.
She said: “He didn't have a bad bone in his body, he was always the person who stepped back and walked away. It is a total waste of a life. & # 39;
In a tribute on Facebook, Mrs. Hughes said: & Today is a very sad day. With great regret, we have to inform everyone that Michael Lewis (Liam Boland) has been cruelly taken away from his family and friends.
& # 39; Liam / Michael was a very special person for many people, he was too young and innocent to leave us like that. & # 39;
Mr. Lewis's friends have now set up a GoFundMe page to help with funeral expenses.
One of the fundraisers they wrote: & Liam / Michael was a very special person for many people, he was too young and innocent to leave us like that. We'll miss him. & # 39;
Mr. Lewis's parents, Julie Lewis and father Patrick Boland, flew away to be with their son after he was injured and taken to the hospital.
It is believed that they are still on the island and Mrs. Hughes said they are being cared for by the British consulate in Tenerife.

A person said on Facebook: & # 39; A sweet man with a creaking smile. You always put a smile on my face, even when you excited me. Stolen from us at 23. & # 39;
While another said: & # 39; So tragic. He was a great guy. The short time I knew him. Not a bad bone in him. & # 39;
