How tragic - the only glimmer of consolation from me is the fact that if someone's life is so bad that they even contemplate suicide, then they will go on to a far, far better place.

Thoughts and prayers to his friends and family, though I don't know this guy, it always saddens me to hear of anyone dying in this way.

I feel sorry for the person who found him how selfish

He wasn't selfish bobby, just in a terrible position, so before anyone starts to dis the guy think twice, love to his little girls

I think it's very selfish for someone to take their own life Sandra, they don't realise the terrible heartache it causes for their families and friends who were probably there to support him, it's called empathy and why do it in such a public place? It could have been a child that found him, what trauma would that child suffer for the rest of their lives. My heart goes out to the family but i just think its a selfish way to die and if people want to commit suicide do it in a less public place.

its selfish and weak sandra no matter what position you are in and ive had this in my family and i would say the same to anyone.

Hope the person that found him is ok

It was in the middle of a wood bobby and he was clearly seriously ill, he has suffered badly over the years, he had all the support that he could have asked for though and his 2 older girls are already feeling guilty for not being able to help him, I just think calling him selfish will make the girls feel worse lv
