He was pronounced dead after unsuccessful attempts to revive him on a pier in the holiday resort of Abades in the south-east of the sunshine island.
His wife Lesley was still on the island yesterday, and a GoFundMe appeal had been set up to repatriate him to Coalville, Leics.
The appeal has already collected more than half of the £4,000 target

Pal Andrew Toher said: “So shocked to hear the news. He was a top bloke that would do anything to help. Thoughts and prayers to Lesley and the family.

Mr Littler was said to have worked as a transport driver but was a well-known local DJ.
Friends and colleagues of Andrew have already made sure the appeal has raised more than half of its£4,000 goal.
