Man Whose Children Were Killed by Drunk Driver Commits Suicide a Day After Father’s Day
I skimmed the article; it doesn’t say what drove this man’s anxiety and suicidal ideation, so I’m not sure if his kids being killed by a drunk driver is what pushed his mental health the wrong way, or if they were pre-existing conditions.
Regardless, although this guy was married with children, his children were killed, so being married and a parent was not a guarantee of constant happiness for him.
Being married, and I guess a father, didn’t bring him inner peace, joy, and all the other things so many conservatives (like Al Mohler and Brad Wilcox) say it will bring.
You can get married and have children and still be depressed or have other mental health problems, or your loved ones can still die.
Very sad story.

A Canadian dad whose three children were killed by a drunk driver in 2015 took his own life in the hours after Father’s Day.
Edward Lake’s wife Jennifer Neville-Lake shared the tragic news about her husband along with a photo of their three children — Daniel, Harry and Milly, who were 9, 5 and 2 when they died in the crash.
…A day before she shared a post with a picture of the children’s graves
…Her family was driving the children to their home when drunk driver Marco Muzzo T-boned their vehicle in the city of Vaughan, the outlet said.
Muzzo was reportedly granted full parole in 2021.
…Lake told the outlet at the time of the sentencing hearing that he was grappling with “suicidal thoughts and intense anxiety.”
