Sometimes people feel trapped. As if there is no other way, especially after x amount of years. Eventually they get to the point where it's just not
worth fighting anymore, so the guilt of putting loved ones the that pain is not enough to keep them going anymore.
As for the method, I don't think it was planned at that specific time, maybe it just crept up on him that day. I think it was probably the easiest
way, easy enough to keep him from changing his mind and having to feel the dread of continuing on another day or having the guilt change his mind.
I think, what he would have wanted is not for the ones he loved to be sad and remembered as a tragic ending, but to be remembered by the good memories
and for them to move on with their own lives.
Of course, it's never that easy. But I do hope his family can find some sense of closure.
