Sad news - Douglas Fruchey RIP😕

Prayers to his family and friends!

Very young.. too young!

RIP!

AB
 
Super sad. And I was actually trying to grab more info on this as well. Doug actually won the overall at one of my first shows. Large human being and an overall nice guy. Would chat with him every Saturday at golds as he was a 5am guy.

Not trying to stir the pot here as everyone wants to know cause of death, but he was reported missing since June 6th. So this doesn’t seem like a “BBer went to sleep and never woke up” thing. RIP
 
He definitely had a hard life from watching that interview. Rip big guy
 
Prayers go to him and his family and friends. RIP Iron Brother.
 
That's the second one that I heard today.
I received an email from the business email addresss of a fellow competitor and my former chiropractor that he had passed away. I made some inquiries and as it turned out, he committed suicide.
It just goes to show you never can tell...he was always in a good mood, had a THRIVING business and a beautiful daughter. He went through a pretty rough divorce a year or two back, and I can only assume that affected him more than he let on.

I guess the moral is, in this month of "Men's Mental Health Awareness", we really need to be more aware. Reach out to your friends and acquaintances and just let them know that they're being thought about and that someone cares for them.

What an incredibly saddening morning.

So true. It takes two seconds to check in on someone you know in this sport. In men you will usually never know.

So sad to hear. RIP.
 
In my line of work I come across many suicides, some people have suffered with mental illness or some sort of trauma all their lives, others there appears to be no triggers or warning signs.

You never know what’s going on in peoples heads.
 
I usually catch up with Doug today. He and his wife are 5am’ers and both of us have legs on Saturdays. Sad as hell.

What’s weird is lots of online comments are calling suicide out. Brad Rowe even left a comment saying they found Doug in his apt. That seems to directly go against the MISSING PERSON report that was being sent around online saying Doug was last seen on June 6th leaving Gold’s at night. Not quite adding up right now but still a super sad situation. RIP big guy.
 
I heard some rumors that he was depressed and was looking for help

Is it suicide?
I made some inquiries and as it turned out, he committed suicide.
^^^36 is waaay too young ..the whole thing is soo immensely sad

..the suicide ..........just makes it so much more sad

..could it have been prevented? ..it's hard to say


rest now brother!!

^^^just to preface; ..i like/respect you brother ..so i'm not heckling/or dissecting your post ..i KNOW what you meant & it's good

buy yeah it takes more than the proverbial 2-seconds (..if only)

►2-seconds is:
🤗- "..hey how'r you doing?"
🤕- "..oh i'm good ..thanks"
🤗- "..that's great!! ..ok see ya"

..it requires time & effort
(..that truthfully ..& sadly ..many of us just don't have to spare)
..bc you'r not gonna uncover THAT kind of shit with a "2-second-topical-conversation"

..it takes getting down into their world bc it's not going to get on-the-table of a casual conversation
..esp in men ..like you said ..it's hard(er) to spot


^^^even taking the time ..& putting the effort ..there is no guarantee that you'll succeed ..or that they'l even "let you in"
..sometimes they only let in the "trusted ones"
..& sometimes a complete stranger is easier to talk to
..so who's to say that YOU are even the one to save them?
(..of course we want to though ..esp in hindsight)

so this isn't a call-to-arms about doing a better ..more genuine investigation
..bc even with all that ..it's still a crap-shoot

..just reminds us how complicated human being are ..& that not everybody is having an easy-time of coping


^^^over the years i had 2 employees ..same story ..young ..doing great numbers ..& nobody was the wiser
..there were others ..but those 2 still resurfaces to some extent when i see these
..if i had made a better ..deeper ..effort

..could i have made a difference?

It was a figure of speech. Check in on someone was the point. But you already knew that.
 
The instagram is full of so many idiots and conspiracy theories... he was having alot of mental health issues.. he was struggling.. he went missing for days.. but ended back at his apartment where he took his own life... .. sad.. should not have happened.. but sadly suicide is becoming more and more prevalent..
 
Very sad to hear. Thoughts are with his family.

We all have shit going on in our lives. These are the things that remind us all to be present with ourselves and with each other. If you feel like something is off with someone you know, follow that hunch and ask.

Though not every self harm or suicide is preventable, knowing someone out there cares enough to ask can change the course of someone's thinking. Not always, but it can.

Were all adults, and were all ultimately going to do whatever we want to do. But I feel like we all underestimate the ability to help and influence we can have on each other if we just take a few minutes to show some compassion.

Take care brothers.
 
Apparently those that had talked to him in the days before said he seemed fine.. but I was friends with a guy who literally kissed his wife and kids ... went to work his night shift.. but instead went to home depot and bought rope and a stool.. then went to a market and bought whiskey.. waited for his kids and wife to go to sleep. Went to the backyard and hung himself from a tree right in front of the kitchen window.. the wife woke up and looked out the window and there he was... why do that to your family.. ones you just kissed before you left. ??
