There are details being posted. How do you know he took his own life? It just seems odd.

Suicide is not the answer to any problem but unfortunately for Stephen that's how he felt.
Sad he coward out and left emotional scars behind
Suicide is definitely an option for many situations.Who are you to say otherwise?You have no idea of what he was going through and for the likes of you to suggest he was a coward is filthy dirty.I am sure that he was twice the man that you will ever be.Now go climb back into your spider hole

How do you know he committed suicide people? He loved his wife and daughter. He was a newlywed. Or are all you jumping to speculations?. If so the hell with you. Disrespect.

I heard what happened and no matter how you look at it, it's very sad and tragic. You all need to grow up and show a little respect during these very trying times for his family. Opinions are like assholes and some of you on this forum have proved that theory.

It states that his wife was at his side. So "anonymous" poster, what your saying is that he hung himself with her by his side? Really? R.I.P Stephen...

People can sure talk but not what's real, lame! Go to Google and put mountain democrat Stephen allard and when the artical comes up go to bottom where it says 1 reply and then a huge large article pops up. Still doesn't really say anymore than what we already know. we all know what really happened and what was said already soooo....rip Stephen! I love u!!
