He was eating at city cellar, kept getting up and going outside to the tracks, then coming back in. Did that a few times, came in to eat some more, then went out and stood in the middle of the tracks and the train hit him.

Was the food in the City Cellar that bad??

The way it's written in the Patch it seems a if he was eating outside. Who gets up from a table in a restaurant below ground and just walks out only to come back in?

Weird for sure. It seems he was, in some way, mentally disturbed.

Sad case any way you cut it

I'm shocked at some of the comments I have read... Have some compassion for ppl regardless of race, creed or color. He was not mentally disturbed, he was an excellent husband to his wife and father to his children... May he rest in peace. No one truly knows what is going on in the mind of another individual an when we see others in need of assistance we should be willing to give it. This could have been avoided if ppl actually cared about one another. Should anyone else decide to post something here, please think before doing so because this man has a family an I would hate for them to see trash written about their loved one... RIP you will be truly missed!

Excuse me, he was not mentally disturbed???? Sorry but if someone gets up from their table three times to go see if the train is coming, that's mentally disturbed.

And you say this could have been avoided if people cared about one another. Excuse me, but who the hell are you to say it's OUR fault the man stood in front of a train. Do NOT try to put the blame on us. I did not see anywhere in the article where someone pushed him in front of the train, nobody told him to do it. Sorry but it was not our fault, it was totally his fault. I will sleep well tonight.

Get Real, I'm not here to argue with u I come in peace and I did not say that this incident was the fault of anyone there. I was simply saying that when we see ppl that may look or act like they are not acting reasonably it may be wise for ppl to place a call to authorities and let them step in. I do hope that u were not a witness to his incident, no one should have to live with that in their thoughts as innocent bystanders.

Why do people use this site to be cruel and mean? Is it because you can use a fake name and not show your face?
I don't know this man or his family, but I do know if this happened to my family it would be heart breaking and to find people in my home town cracking jokes and just being innsenative to the situation would be devastating.
Where is our compassion these days? Are we a bunch of careless cowards?

As I stated when I first posted I will be praying for this man's family... No one will EVER know his reasons for him doing what he done... making rude comments and racial slurs are UNCALLED for..if you were there and seen this I am so sorry and if you were there and seen this man do this several times why didn't you call someone (Law Enforcement)to get him some help you may have been able to save his life!! Why didn't you try to talk to him you may have saved his life...but you are probably one that doesn't want to get involved except to make comments on some website that are totally UNCALLED for.. IF YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHING NICE THEN DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL!! God PLEASE grant PEACE that passes all understanding to this family!

Kimberly, friend of the family, whichever name you use, if I "seen" this man get up and walk to the tracks five times he has not committed a crime. What the hell do we tell the police, he's looking at the railroad tracks, come arrest him.
Blame it on everybody else. Since you are a friend of the family why didn't you call the police before he went to the cellar? I'm sure he was acting strange before he left home. Sounds like it's your fault he's dead. You could have saved him.
Two other things, it's "saw" not "seen" and from the posts I've read from you the past couple of years, if I ever "seen" you on the street I would call the police and tell them you have been acting strange for a long time so come lick your crazy azz up.

I see from his facebook page he was into Eastern Spiritualism. Guess it didn't work for him. He left three daughters and a son. Pretty damn selfish if you ask me. The news said yes he was sitting outside eating.
