Former Queensland Police Service Senior Constable Tony Gamer, following a long term illness, sadly took his own life at Wishart on 6 June 2019.
A former member of the QPS Special Emergency Response Team and more recently the QPS Railway Squad, Tony served within the QPS since 1990, before his medical retirement in 2018.
Tony will be remembered as an incredibly reliable and talented Police Officer who is survived by his fiancé Kaylea and daughter Sophie. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and colleagues who are all struggling with this profound loss.

with or without your praise or scorn,
to place the life of you and yours,
above their own, to uphold the laws.
They see it all, the best and worst
and their visual memories can be a curse.
Still they do their best to quiet the mind,
to reach within and strength and valour find.
They will knowingly step into harm’s way
to protect and serve you each and every day.
We only ask them that if the burden feels too much to bear,
please reach out there are so many that do care…
We bow our heads and offer gratitude and praise,
sadly too often the highest price of life itself is paid.

We were extremely fortunate earlier today, to attend an amazing tribute to the late Senior Constable Tony Gamer on the Raby Bay foreshore.
Whoever it is upstairs pulled all the right levers, resulting in a perfect ‘winters’ day where those who knew and loved Tony turned out in droves to honour this incredibly talented, diligent and highly respected man.
Addressing Tony’s father, QPS Rail Squad’s Senior Constable Jeff ‘Manta’ Rae summed his colleague and great mate up perfectly:
‘To Mr James Gamer… I want you to know that your son was very much an Officer and a gentleman and the service he provided to the community can never be measured or truly recognised but he will be long remembered and not replaced.’
We can’t begin to understand the grief and profound loss that Tony’s family are currently enduring, however, what became abundantly clear today (and in fact since our initial notification) was the boundless love Tony clearly had for partner Kaylea and daughter Sophie, and indeed his entire family.
Additionally, should it be necessary, we are certain that as Sophie grows, she will be forever able to turn to her extended blue family for reminders and reassurances that her father was very simply a fine man, loved and respected by all.
Blue HOPE stands ready.
