Darren Munnelly (pictured), was found with a serious head injury at a property on Carr Street early in the early hours of 25 July, but died a short time later in hospital.
A man has appeared at Lincoln Crown Court charged with his murder.
Paying tribute to Mr Munnelly his family spoke about his charity work, which included cooking and delivering meals for people during the coronavirus pandemic lockdowns.
In a statement they said: "Darren was such a friendly, popular and sociable man who was so kind to others.
"He’d play snooker with his son Sean, and won several titles including the junior championship of Lincoln two years in a row - we're honoured the league is considering naming a trophy in his honour.
"He will always be missed. He was irreplaceable."
After a dry, bright and sunny start, it will cloud over with heavy, showery rain, pushing in later in the afternoon.

Storms could bring flooding to parts of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire at the end of the week, forecasters have warned.Copyright: Met Office
A yellow weather warning for thunderstorms has been issued by the Met Office from 10:00 on Friday 6 August to 09:00 on Saturday 7 August.
Forecasters say "slow moving thundery downpours may cause localised surface water impacts".
A yellow warning means you should plan ahead thinking about possible travel delays, or the disruption of your day to day activities.
The Met Office says it's monitoring the developing weather situation and warns people should "keep an eye on the latest forecast" and be aware the weather may "change or worsen, leading to disruption of your plans in the next few days."
This morning, it will be dry and bright with plenty of sunny spells.false

The future of a major steampunk festival has been secured after a deal to keep it in Lincoln for the next five years was agreed.Copyright: Danny Lawson/PA Wire
The Asylum festival - held annually in August - attracts up to 100,000 people each year and is believed to be worth about £2.5m to the local economy.
Plans had been drawn up to hold a smaller event in Newark this year due to Covid concerns, but were scrapped after the host venue closed.
The festival will now return in 2022.
Organiser John Naylor said: "Lincoln has provided a spectacular backdrop for the steampunk community's creativity since 2009, so we are delighted to be able to return.
"Covid looked like putting the kybosh on absolutely everything - so to be able to come out the other side, with a plan to build and be more spectacular is just phenomenal," he said.
He added: "What I'm really hoping for is Lincoln will end up with a festival as big and world-famous as the Edinburgh Fringe."
Yorkshire should be mostly dry today, with a mixture of sunny spells and cloud throughout the day. Just a chance of the odd isolated shower in the afternoon.
Lincolnshire will also see a dry start, with patchy cloud and sunny spells. Later on, the sunny spells will become less frequent, and one or two isolated showers may develop.Copyright: BBC
