A family man said to be 'loved by everyone' tragically died at the age of just 53.

Jason Lee Dymott lived with his partner Laura Flynn and her daughter at Spa Crescent in Little Hulton.

He was found deceased at  Amblecotes Playing Fields on Cleggs Lane, on February 18 after being reported missing.

In a statement read out by Assistant Coroner, Bronia Hartley,  Miss Flynn described him as: “A family man and if he was not at work, he was at home where he was happy and content.

“He was loved by everyone.

“He had been fine recently but quiet, but he was generally quiet.”

Mr Dymott, who had attended Harper Green High School, was a scaffolder, whose hobbies included cars, watching boxing, and fishing.

Mr Dymott had seven children in total, with two daughters, three sons, and two step-daughters later on in life.

But Miss Flynn’s statement said the Covid pandemic ‘slowed him down somewhat’ but as far as she was concerned, Mr Dymott did not have any financial or relationship issues, but found scaffolding ‘hard in the winter.’

On the morning of February 18, Miss Flynn’s statement said that her partner appeared to be in a ‘good mood’ and she had left for work at 10.20am returning at 1.30pm.

On returning, Miss Flynn found a bedside cabinet drawer open, with a phone Mr Dymott had left.

The phone had messages sent from Mr Dymott to himself where he had written that if someone was reading the messages, it was already too late.

Miss Flynn raised the alarm and reported her partner as missing to police, as they searched in the area to find him.

A family member saw Mr Dymott’s car at Amblecote Playing Fields car park and alerted a police officer.

Pathologist Dr Neil Papworth gave the cause of death as hanging and explained that though ketamine and amphetamine were found in his system and could cause a ‘dissociation from reality,’ he could not say if this had anything to do with Mr Dymott’s death.

While Mr Dymott had no health conditions or mental health appointments in the lead-up to his death, he did present to GPs in 2014 and 2017 with depression.

Ms Hartley said: "I am satisfied to record a short form conclusion as suicide. I accept the pathologist, Dr Papworth's given cause of death as  hanging."

She added: “I wish to extend my sincere condolences to the family of Jason Lee Dymott and to his friends and all who were touched by his death.”
