"Our family is in complete shock. Thank you for the community’s concern for our Dad, Carl Bridgmon, he was 70-years-old and a Lynnwood resident," said the Bridgmon family.  

"Our Dad loved to go to that park and sit and have his coffee several times a week," said his daughter Courtney Teno. We are devastated and would really appreciate privacy as we process this over the next few days and weeks."
