Guy was a huge asshole. Ex told me once, that when she was younger, the guy would make her wash his truck, while wearing a swimsuit. The guy had the ex's mother so scared from mental and physical abuse she was afraid to ever leave him, in fear of her life. On one of the visits, I saw him pick up their family dog and sling it against a tree, just for barking. It's a wonder he didn't kill the poor animal.
Apparently his illness was long and drawn out. Liver and kidney failure, bleeding from rectum, nose, and mouth. He deserved it.
