Breaking News ! Hundreds have paid tribute to an "inspirational" teacher from Wirral who has died from coronavirus. Paul Hilditch tragically died on December 27, aged 55 and had no underlying health conditions. He loved walking and the outdoors and his family had rarely known him to even catch a cold. Paul grew up in Willaston Village and lived there for 22 years before heading up north to teach, where his three children Emily, 28, Adam, 26, and Camille, 24, said he inspired so many with his passion for life and learning. His tragic and untimely death last year came as a crushing bolt from the blue, Teeside Live reported. Emily said: "Dad was an extremely fit guy, this is something we never expected could happen to him. "We are all still in shock."

And his love for life and positive outlook will always inspire them. Paul lived in Heighington Village, near Newton Aycliffe, and had been teaching at Conyers School in Yarm for four years at the time of his death. During his career he also taught at schools in County Durham, including Wellfield Community School in Wingate and Sunnydale School in Shildon. His children said technology was a subject which he always found fascinating, and he took great pride in passing his extensive knowledge on to the next generation. Outside of his career, Paul's hobbies and interests were vast. A keen historian, Paul helped to set up one of the largest re-enacting groups in the UK. Over 15 years, his Northern World War Two Association ignited a passion for history in hundreds of people across the area. His love for the outdoors gave his family countless fond memories of their walks together. His children added: "Only in the summer, Dad helped us descend a mountain in the Lake District via compass bearings after a thick fog obscured our path. "In the local area, he was captivated by the beauty of the River Tees. "We share his passion for the outdoors. And when we revisit the countless paths we shared with Dad, it’ll feel like he’s alongside us.

She said: "He joined the Army Cadets as a teenager which enabled him to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and complete his A Levels in sixth form. "Paul then went to Crewe and Alsager College to make his future career in teaching, which he so loved. "His great love of life however, was re-enacting. He first started with the American Civil War and then the Second World War. "This was the love of Paul’s life - he had finally become ‘Action Man’." Diana said Paul was a "truly wonderful and loved" son, brother to John and James, father to Emily, Camille and Adam, uncle to Izzy and James and brother-in-law to Zoe. "He will be so missed by all who were lucky enough to have had the pleasure of his company," she said. "He will always be in our hearts and will never be forgotten."
