Husband of Woman Brain Damaged By Rock Thrown To His Moving Car Commits Suicide

The husband of an  Ohio woman left brain damaged after teenagers threw a rock through the windshield of her moving car has committed suicide – two years after the incident. 

In July 2014, 54-year-old Sharon Budd was driving with her husband of 33 years, Randy Budd, and their daughter Kaylee, 21, from Ohio to New York when a 5lb rock came crashing through the window of their Nissan Rogue. 

Sharon was hit in the forehead and suffered irreparable brain damage, a crushed skull and the loss of her right eye. She subsequently lost the ability to handle everyday tasks like showering and dressing herself, the family previously told PEOPLE

The incident left not just Sharon, but her husband Randy, 55, devastated!

In June, Randy told PEOPLE that the teens, "need a wake up call. We want them to come out and be productive citizens and to stop this destructive criminal behavior. I was young once too, but I never did anything like this – for God's sake it was a 5 lb. rock." 



In August 2016, 55-year-old Randy Budd committed suicide! He was pronounced dead on Saturday, August 6, 2016 in his Uniontown, Ohio, home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to report

Budd and wife Sharon were the only ones in the home at the time, and his death came after he texted several family members telling them. He also made several phone calls to his brother.


In addition, Randy was said to have sent a message to Pennsylvania state Sen. Gene Yaw urging him to "please" get legislation passed to require fencing on highway overpasses,PennLive reported.


"The Budd family are all together and are grieving the loss of their dad, husband and brother," the family said in a statement to The Canton Repository. "We deeply appreciate the tremendous support our family has received from the Massillon, Canton and Hartville areas over the past several years. We ask for your prayers and some privacy as we deal with our loss."

Union County District Attorney D. Peter Johnson told PennLive that Randy was a victim of the four teenagers who injured Sharon two years ago. 

"Randy Budd did not die from a gunshot," Johnson charged. "He died when those kids threw a rock through his windshield."
