"When I heard the news I couldn't believe what had happened," one wrote.

"You were always such a good friend to me and always helped me when I needed you.

"In the last 12 months or so you turned your life around and I will always be proud of you."

Mr Green had been raising funds for charity and was part of a group of eight workers when they checked into the ill-fated hotel about 10pm Wednesday.

"We had some good times, you were a good mate," a friend wrote.

"There were bad times but more good times."

Another friend posted: "You will be missed by all."
