Why doesn't someone help this guy out he's been there forever ! The gas station lets him come in all day long and sit on the stacks of soda can and stink up the place the employees must enjoy the smell

He lived at the Barboursville Veterans Home. They kicked him out because he wouldn't take a bath. He's a nice man and has fought for this country and now he's living on the streets.. It's a very sad thing... He makes little flower and gives them to people and he will tell you to have a blessed day.. But one thing is he will not beg for money... Always remember before you bash anyone you can also end up like this man...

I did not bash anyone. I merely said Tudor's lets him do the same thing.

He's been around for a year or 2 I think. He won't take any help. He says he's fine and he go's on his way. I'm afraid that he will get hurt on the road.

Is david norton he is a vietnam vet. And he does not want help. He lives that way by choice. I know hard to understand. But being a hobo is his lifestyle.he is happy. He has money plenty of it. He told me he don't want to be tied down to no lease. I said how about a weekly rate at a hotel just for winter? NOPE. Don't like that tried it he said. He says he's going to show everyone the old man can still do it! And smiled real big. So what can u do? If he is happy being a hobo...I love him he's a great guy and full of life and passionate about what he believes in. Took him to church couple of times..he worshipped so freely..very enjoyable and rememborable time...

Mr. Norton was explaning to me one day that he also has a storage building in Barboursville for his other stuff. He has always been nothing but nice even when people drive by and are not very nice. So, I hope everyone gives him and any other homeless person a break. This world would be a better place if we just took the time to listen ans share....

There are people at the VA who have tried and are trying to help this veteran. He wants a place in Barboursville to stay as that is where he has a storage bldg. He can pay a modest rent but won't sign a lease,an aspect of a mental health issue.I for one would help him set up his apartment and visit to make sure he is doing alright.Can we work together to help find him a home?

He is a nice man who chooses this life style... Talk to him sometime very nice to chat with! Judge not or be judged!

Idk him or his circumstances & I'm truly sorry for anyone who is homeless or suffering from mental health issues, BUT it's incredibly annoying to have to step over his belongings to get into a business, not be able to pump gas bc he's parked at a pump to stay under the awning or nearly avoid killing him as he strolls across rt 60. Seriously, why do the business & PD in Bville allow this?

Your life must be hard having to step over a homeless guys stuff or waiting a couple mins for another gas pump to open up... Where is the compassion n love in the human spirit anymore? I pray that u never get dwn on ur luck or do anything that causes others to look at u like most look at this man because that would be sad! Remember Jesus loves him too!

Oh pi$$ off. You know nothing about me, my luck or the way I treat people. Stop being such a Pollyanna & get real. Jesus loves me too, just as I love him, but I'm human, things annoy me at times & I have a right to verbalize that just as anyone else does.
I'm sure you've never had a bad thought or word about anyone.
It is annoying & it looks bad for the business he's laying on the sidewalk in front of. That doesn't mean I think less of the man or have anything against him. I've talked to him several times, know his story, bought him a cup of coffee & even took my wife one of his paper flowers. So, while you're out there spreading love & pureness, I'm gonna keep it real.
