Tim Galley, who is believed to have no underlying health conditions, has decided to isolate himself from his girlfriend Donna Cuthbert after his discomfort last Sunday.
His illness started with a small tickle in his throat, which he developed after going to a deer on Saturday, reports North Wales Live.
Tim, 47, decided not to work on Monday and started to develop a fever because Ms. Cuthbert could not see him because of his illness.
But his broken-hearted girlfriend described how messages from him were becoming less frequent and on Tuesday his body was discovered in his apartment.
Mr. Galley’s body had to be removed from his Wrexham apartment by paramedics wearing protective clothing.
Donna said, “Of course, I was very worried when he developed a fever, as I was worried about the coronavirus.
“But since he wanted to protect me, I couldn’t go to visit him.
“As he got worse, I asked him to call for an ambulance but he kept telling me that he was fine, that he had no underlying health problems and that they would be too busy to deal with other people. ”
Monday evening, she sent a message to her partner for four years, fearing that he would not see him for a few weeks because they should both isolate themselves.
His response was, “Don’t be stupid, or of course you will. ”
Tim did not return any of Donna’s calls after that.
She said: “Tuesday morning I was panicking because Tim did not answer my calls. I asked his neighbor to check it out because they had a key. They found him in bed.

“The paramedics in protective clothing came, and I just can’t bear the idea that he was alone. ”
Donna, who runs a wedding business, added that Tim was “adored by his children.”
She said, “He just had such a massive heart and we had a wonderful life together.
“We were supposed to attend my daughter Danielle’s wedding but it was also canceled due to the coronavirus.
“We had so much vacation and we had so many things planned. He was my future.
“Tim has given me so much love, happiness and incredible moments.
“He was so special for my daughter Danni and my other kids and he celebrated with Olivia and Ariyah and he won’t be able to meet Ryan and Maxine’s baby. ”
Donna said she hoped people would take government and health care advice on coronavirus seriously.
She said, “Please all follow the advice and stay inside and follow the rules that this virus is serious and is taking our loved ones.
“I just want everyone to stay safe and stay at home.
“Tim took all the precautions but this virus still caught him, my heart is broken into small pieces. ”
