May he find rest for his soul, and all the related family and you friends at least be at peace with his situation. Our prayers are with you all.
I grew up in a small, close-knit rural community, and one of my high school classmates' father hanged himself in the barn. I asked my own father why people do this - he said: " No one will ever know or understand. Each person has to face his own life as he can." It is still unfathomable, but I believe it will all get sorted out on the other side of the Veil.

I pray that your shock and unease pass soon. It is very sad and confusing when this happens; it's also so very sad that so many of us TA.net'ers have lost someone we've known this same way...

Had a friend commit suicide nearly 35 years ago. Had a physical ailments that was going to eventually kill him (heart condition). Took a cocktail of drugs that stopped his heart. Understood why he did it, but still painful to know that he passed that way.
You can go absolutely bonkers trying to answer the "What if" question, and the "Could I have done something to help" question, but in the end you will realize that it was their decision to do what they did. It is difficult to get past what happened, but it is easier with time and understanding.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Suicide is something that touches most friends and families. With us it was my wife's cousin. We are a close, tight knit family, more so back when this occurred. Her cousin had suffered from MS for years but had a large and loving support group. Still, one day he walked out in to the back yard with his .45. I guess that he had just had enough.

Sorry for your loss and in my prayers ! If someone really wants to do that there is not much that can be done to stop them as they will find a way.

I couldn't say it better, so I'm repeating this:
