The family of Brighton murder victim Gordon Stalker, who was stabbed to death at his home in Elm Grove on Monday, have paid tribute to him.
In a statement released tonight, they said: “Gordon was a much loved son, brother and uncle.
“He spent his younger years with his family in Cumbria, before making his home in Brighton.
“Gordon was a popular, fun-loving man with many friends in the Brighton area.
“He loved his work in electronics, an interest he shared with his Dad.
“He will be greatly missed by the whole family and also by his friends down in Brighton.
“We would like to thank all Gordon’s friends for their kind words and tribute messages that have been left on his Facebook account.
“This is obviously a very difficult time for us and the circumstances of Gordon’s death are very difficult for us to understand.”
A man was arrested last night on suspicion of Mr Stalker’s murder and is still being held by police.
A memorial will be held to Mr Stalker at the Lewes Road Community Garden on Sunday from 2pm to 4pm.
