Rip....really rare for someone that age to take their life without some kind of mental disease.

I am betting he was bipolar or something of that nature...

the last decade the rate of Baby Boomer suicide is increasing while pretty much every other demographic is either steady or declining. that means something, but don't ask me what.

RIP I've suffered from severe depression and it's not joke. I've reached a point where I understood why someone could take their own life. Luckily I had already been diagnosed and educated, so I understood that things would eventually get better.


When I try and describe severe depression to someone, I usually say something like; imagine waking up every morning and feeling like everyone in your life was dead, only they weren't. Then wanting to do everything you love to do, but being completely unable to. It's a deep feeling of emptiness and discontent with everything and everyone around you, to the point that is unexplainable unless you've experienced it.




I think the most important part of dealing with depression is recognition and education. The problem is that people experiencing depression are ashamed of their feelings, and tend to both physically and emotionally isolate themselves from friends and family. I was able to defeat my depression without the use of any medication (plenty was offered), but it took about a year of my life.

His name didn't ring a bell but looked him up I've seen some of his movies like Beverly Hill Cop 2, Enemy Of the State, Deja vu, Spy Game.

Rest in peace!

Very true. I think folks are generally surprised with how little fame and money tend to fulfill one's life. That doesn't mean fame and money make people unhappy, rather, it'll just never be the answer to finding meaning or happiness. It may sound clichè, but again, I do find this to be true.
