    I get the Google Alerts for the Dubs - an article from Telegraph & Argus features the story in the title, I'm not techy enough to know how to attach it here, but his wife ID'd him a JW, then it says he was a window washer, so no doubt that he was def a Dub, he's from Mayfield Place in Wyke. He was acting irratic jumping in and out of traffic and such.

    Is this a big story in whatever part of the UK this was taking place in?

    It seems like somebody here would have been aware of him. JW's love celebrity Witnesses. I would be curious about his story.

    didn't know him, RIP

    You know he had prominence, status, and money, cause if he committed suicide, there is no other way that the JW's would let him have a service in the Kingdom Hall unless he had status and MONEY.

    Sad story ... I wonder if his meds (and recent change of ) had anything to do with it?

    I think Wing Commander (above ) is being somewhat judgemental . All Witness deaths , and those of relatives if wished, get a service at the K/Hall , Suicides are not excluded.
