He was a wonderful son and brother and leaves behind an extensive group of family and friends. “He will be sorely missed and the devastation this has caused will never heal. Gary was the most devoted son, brother, father, and grandfather, giving everything for his loved ones.

Suspect arrested for the murder of father and son in Cambridgeshire shooting
Police received reports of shots fired in Meridian Close, Bluntisham, shortly after 9 pm. m., and then similar reports in Sutton at 9:37 p.m. m. on Wednesday. A 32-year-old man was found dead in Bluntisham and a 57-year-old man was found dead in Sutton. Detective Inspector Mark Butler of the main crime unit said: “There is no increased risk to the general public.” There will be an increased police presence in the areas involved and crime officers and agents will be on the scenes.”
Neighbors were shocked by the two violent deaths on tree-lined streets where family homes sell for more than £500,000. Designer Sarah Lown, 38, who lives near the two-unit house where twice-married builder Gary Dunmore lived, heard three loud bangs shortly after 9 p.m. m. on Wednesday. I thought something was blown,” she said. ‘I didn’t think anything crazy happened. Then I heard two more. Gordon Murray, 62, who lives across the street, said: “There was a lot of screaming. Then I saw armed policemen. The officers ordered Bluntisham residents to stay indoors as a helicopter circled overhead. Retail worker Sharon Coulson, 58, said the village was “a good place to live, nice country walks, friendly, everyone says hello.”
A floral tribute to Gary Dunmore, left outside his home on The Row, Sutton, read: ‘To my dear neighbor Gary. A man who loved his family very much, a dear friend to all, very helpful and kind, and he was always there as a friend and my little worker. ‘I will miss you.’
Another tribute read: ‘RIP Gary. Destroyed. A floral tribute left for Josh Dunmore in Bluntisham read: “So sad a young life to be taken like this and a little boy now without a daddy.”Thinking of family. RIP Josh X.’
Another tribute said: ‘We have no words for such a tragedy in our sleepy town. Our prayers are with everyone involved. Rest in everlasting peace.
