Mr Storrie’s wife Hilary told how he said ‘I’m done, Hilary, I can’t keep fighting it’ the evening before she found him dead in his bed.

The couple’s sons Aaron, 13, and Andrew 11, are currently self-isolating with Mrs Storrie for 14 days, leaving them unable to see family and friends.

Mrs Storrie said her husband was told to remain in the family’s holiday flat after he was found to have a fever on March 20.

By the tenth day of being sick, Mr Storrie was suffering from a fever and persistent coughing and could barely talk.

But Mrs Storrie said she thought his condition improved that evening when he joined her in the living room. 

Mrs Storrie told The Sun: ‘That was when he turned and said to me “I’m done, Hilary, I can’t keep fighting it”.

‘He went to his bed that night and when I went to check on him the following morning – Day 11 – he was gone.’
