I can't believe how pathetic and ignorant some of you are. How would you feel if such things were written about one of your loved ones? Have some compassion, I will pray that God will enlighten you before it's too late. This was a good man with a wife and children that you are disrespecting. Grow up!

I am torn over this. Juinor you will be missed and always remembered. One of the hardest working man I know. I had no idea blacks were so feared. I will take all these negative comments and use them wisely. We must be doing something great to be hated this much. Noone pays attention to unimportant things or people and by these comments I must say I have never been more proud to be Black. Juinor Rest In Peace. You made a difference.
Sorry for the negativity, blacks are not feared, these are ignorant and uneducated people. It's surprising that they know how to use a computer. My husband worked with Junior and is very saddened by what has happened. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

This is just great. With this guy gone, that means there are now only a total of nine blacks working, including Obama.
Wow, your rampant racism never ceases to amaze me. Every other headline always has a bigoted and racist comment from you. It doesn't matter whether its sports related or its the comics page. You never know when to shut your mouth.
A young man passed away doing his job by providing a necessity in people's lives and you continue to be a jacka$$. Keep it up, you racist moron and the entity known as karma will take care of you.

I think that you are all forgetting what really happened here. This is a tragic death. There are family members and freinds suffering and for them to see these nasty postings is very hurtful. Do you have any clue who this man was? He was a loving, caring father. His children and freinds can read all of the awful comments being made. STOP the madness!! Stop making everything about money. Maybe you are just jealous that he was educated and able to make a good amount of money and supply power to many people. Did it ever occur to you that these men that risk their lives for us are good people a heroe perhaps? Please let the family and freinds mourn in piece. His death is very devastating to many people. R.I.P. The Angels have one more great man in their crew now. My condolences to all of his family and freinds.

junior seaton usually work with my father in jamaica, and my father usually take me to his workplace after school, so i have seen mr seaton work alot of times so i know for sure he's well qualified for this job. therefor i'm sure this was none of his fault. it's just so unfortunate to see this happen to him and to see how some of you people are acting

my prayers and best wishes goes out to his family and friends.

mr seaton was a good man, its just sad to see him go so soon

Junior was a true brother,friend,spiritual & family man. I will miss him dearly as he help me thru a difficult time with my wife's illness on a recent road trip to Texas. Listen to all those with negative & evil comments, I hope to God that you never have to go thru something like this and if you do ,for your sake maybe somewhere in your heart & soul you can find goodness there somewhere. God bless you my brother there is a hole in Wingates heart that won't heal anytime soon. With love to the family!

Linemen are a breed apart from most. They perform a job that most of you don't have the balls to perform. This man was a family man and a man of God, let him rest in peace you ignorant bigot.

I just wanted to say that Junior was an awsome co-worker. It was a real pleasure to come to work and find out that I'd be working side by side with him. He always turned negitives into positives and kept a smile on his face. He was truly a good dude.

wish the American public had just an ounce more of intelligence.

I happen to be the niece of this gentleman and I am sickened by some of these comments. These negative comments are probably coming from unemployed, worthless dogs. How about you go to school and obtain an education as an electrician and then get a job at a high-paying company such as the FPL and then comment on my deceased uncle.

He is an amazing man who will be missed by his wife and two children.

I hope this serves as a lesson to all of you who believe that criticizing those who are not here to speak for themself is entertaining. I wish all of you haters nothing but doom and downfall.

Good riddance!!

Junior is one of the greatest people I have ever worked with. His attitude was great he always had a smile on his face. He will be missed greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. To all the haters out there writing negative comments you woulda been so lucky to have worked with or known him.
