The dad of four, known as Tony, was murdered as he made his way to meet one of his sons in a nearby pub.
His sons have paid tribute to the grandad of two and are urging anyone with information about his death to come forward:
“Dad was a simple man with simple pleasures, and loved nothing more than spending time with his boys. He enjoyed crown green bowling, national hunt racing and he regularly travelled to enjoy the sunshine.''
“He was loved by many and this incident will never leave us. We would appeal to anyone with any information to come forward immediately. We would also like to ask for privacy and understanding at this very difficult time.”
