This is so awful, hate to hear of this passing and in a public place no less. I have seen him do this out there once, it was quiet scary. I always hoped and prayed it would never be that bad. I was afraid he might have one and hurt himself with those weights some how. If he was there I tried to keep an eye out for him. Condolences to the family.

his family is sending him off for an autopsy,they think he might have possibly had a brain tumor causing the seizures to get more frequent and severe.he would'nt go to the doctor to get a ct scan because he did'nt care much for doctors.just keep checking into shakelfords and they will post it as soon as they know something.
