    That is an Indian name, not middle eastern

  2. Charlene Gil Charlene Gil says:

    Was this man in a wheel a chair?

  3. Oh no was he a homeless man sleeping there with blankets and stuff? I’ve seen a guy like that at various bus stops around canyon country always felt so bad on those cold winter nights, hope it’s not him

  4. Lucy Romero Lucy Romero says:

    May he rest in paradise!

  5. Erika Bird Martinez Julia Pascual

  6. I was wondering if its the guy who walks all over Canyon Country with sandals and long black hair. So sad.

    • I was wondering that too but if we’re thinking of the same guy I saw him today waiting for the bus on Sierra highway near sand canyon and it says this poor soul passed on Sunday

    • Missy Gentry Missy Gentry says:

      I just saw that guy at Starbucks in the mall last Thursday. He looked fine but reek of bo. 😕

    • I’ve always wondered what his story is because he has a backpack and nothing else. Just walks up and down Soledad. Been seeing him for 10+ years.

    • Every Time I see him walking I always yell to my mom look their goes your boyfriend because I always get to see him everywhere I go but he lives with he’s mom and has some type of disorder

    • I figured he had to actually live somewhere and yes, you can tell he probably has a mental issue of some sort because he won’t make eye contact with anyone. He pops up everywhere around the city.

    • is this the younger guy like maybe 30s? black long hair parted in the middle? I used to see him at coc and the cc library. poor guy.

    • That guy has been here firever man with black here and same sandals since i was in jr high n high school and now im 30. I used tl see him in canyon country allot 711 area allot but lately i seen him by valencia. I was eating in valencia and saw him and was gonna offer him food but it looked like he was already eating in thete alone so i figured someone else got him food there. I seen him allot though by valencia movies n few times i went to get him food when i came out he was gone again.

    • This guy has to be at least 40 maybe because i seen him when i was in jr high n highschool so its been over 15yrs now. I hope it wasnt him who passed away.

    • Missy Gentry Missy Gentry says:

      Sandra Huerta when I was in high school graduated 2002. I would always sees him walking with the back pack, wearing a black suit and hair was comb back nice. He always walks to a Starbucks location

    • Well hopefully it wasn’t him but sad no matter what

  7. Any body have a pic of the man

  8. The guy with long hair lives in canyon country in those mobile homes on Soledad. I think his name is micheal. He is a special need. Somebody even made a page on FB. If people see him they take a picture and post on his page.
