Slain Brampton homeseller ‘was a good family man’

The last time Andrea Dookhie saw Brampton real-estate agent Devinder Kumar, he was the picture of a proud, happy father, buying ice cream for his two daughters.

That’s the way Dookhie, 17, wants to remember Kumar, 38, who was left for dead at the side of a Caledon road Thursday morning.

“He was a family friend and also our real-estate agent,” she said Saturday, recalling how Kumar brought his daughters to her family’s creamery on Nov. 4.

“He was obviously totally proud of his daughters,” she said. “He was a good family man.”

Her high opinion was typical for neighbours and associates of Kumar, who sold homes and owned rental properties.

Police found Kumar at The Gore Rd. north of Mayfield Rd. around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday with serious injuries.

He was found near a sprawling home he had listed for sale on a semirural lot. No price was listed for the home, which had parking for four cars.

Police unsuccessfully tried to save Kumar, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The area was still blocked off by police tape and cruisers Saturday.

Marlon Nurse, 29, of Caledon and Darryl Plummer, 25, of Brampton have been charged with first-degree murder. A post-mortem exam was conducted Friday, but a cause of death has yet to be announced.

“It was very shocking to hear that someone could harm that guy, because he would never get into an argument ever,” said Ravi Hooda, a real-estate agent who had done business with Kumar. “Even if someone wanted an argument, he’d keep laughing and walk away.”

Hooda added that Kumar was popular among their colleagues and would greet many of them with a bear hug.

“He was a very successful Realtor® who never had any kind of professional jealousy,” said Hooda, who also volunteered with him for the Progressive Conservatives in the recent provincial election. “It’s tough for the whole real-estate industry.”

Kumar was an engineer before working for ReMax. He leaves behind a wife, and 6- and 9-year-old daughters.

“He’s like a brilliant star, which shines for a little while and just goes away,” said Hooda. “It seems like I’ve lost a brother.”
