THE funeral of a much-loved young father who died after collapsing at his Bournemouth home is to take place later this week.

Lifelong asthmatic Allan Roushas-Lee, who was 34, left a widow Charlotte and a 19-month-old daughter Evangeline, who were at home with him in Southbourne when he lost consciousness.

The former paint sprayer was a support worker to boys with Asperger’s Syndrome at Southlands School near Lymington.

He grew up in Poole with his identical twin Clinton and their younger brother Matthew, attending Hillbourne First and Middle Schools then Poole High.

He and Charlotte had been together since meeting at Tower Park when they were teenagers. They married in 2008.

An inquest into Allan’s death was opened and adjourned last Friday. His funeral will be at Poole Crematorium at 3.30pm on Thursday.
