I haven't heard anything about this. I'll do some checking. His grandfather was my basketball coach in high school.

I tried to find the obituary but couldn't. Anyone else have any luck. I didn't have his last name either so it was a struggle from the beginning.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

As I heard it, the family was so distraught that they didn't publish an obituary, so I looked for death notices and had the same luck as you. I might try police reports/coroner's reports next, as there has to be some public record.

Okay, I just sent an e-mail to the Palmer, AK chief of police. Hopefully, he can answer this or point me in the right direction.

I found the page on FB and posted condolences. I pray they are well received, as it's not fresh but still "soon".

Yeah, I posted the FB page on WW. That was all I was able to find. The family is going through some very tough times with Johns suicide and another son being diagnosed with MS. I've been giving my own kids some extra time lately...

I never actually interacted with AKweldshop, but he seemed from stroies and stuff I read to be a strong willed man. I will never understand how someone like that could take their own life. Some things are just a part of the greater plan. Thank you Steve for the condolence message.
