More than 300 people came together at St Peter’s Church, Fairfield, on Monday to say farewell to brave Buxton lad Josh Leech.
Josh, 18, amazed medical professionals by surviving microcephaly - a condition where a child’s head is smaller than normal - into his late teens.
The teen, who was much-loved by the people of Buxton, died last month.
Mum Rachel Leech, 43, said she was ‘amazed’ by how many people attended the ‘beautiful’ service - which was accompanied by John Williams’ Superman theme tune with Josh’s coffin draped in a Superman flag.
She said: “It was lovely because he was our little superhero.
“It was a celebration of his life and there was so much love in that room - it was overwhelming.”
