Release Statement Monday 7th September 2020



With deep sadness we mourn the loss of Gary Sutton, Release’s Head of Drug Services who passed away on the 5th September. We are heartbroken for his family, Monique, Katie and Emily, whom he loved so very much.

Gary was the soul of Release and had been with the organisation for 20 years. He was an intelligent, funny, kind, compassionate and exceptional human being who was highly respected as an expert witness and counsellor and would always go beyond what was required to support his clients.

There aren’t the words right now to do justice to Gary’s legacy. The world is a darker place without him. We will try in the future, but for now all we can say is how much he will be missed by his colleagues, clients and friends.

We love you, Gaz.
