“Our family is in complete shock. Thank you for the community’s concern for our Dad,” the statement reads.
Bridgmon “loved to go to that park and sit and have his coffee several times a week,” his daughter, Courtney Teno, said in the statement. “We are devastated and would really appreciate privacy as we process this over the next few days and weeks.”
