Homeless Man Freezes to Death

A friend's uncle. 3 years ago he was married with two kids, a job and a house in a middle class area of the Peninsula south of SF. It was well known in the family he had a history of mental instability, but medication had softened the problems. Over the course of three years his wife died of disease, he lost his job, his house was foreclosed, his kids moved in with an aunt, he lost his ability pay for medication. Last week they found his body in the backseat of his car, dead from cardiac arrest, after the recent cold snap.
