A Canadian dad whose three children were hit by a drunk driver in 2015 killed himself just hours after Father’s Day.
Edward Lake’s wife Jennifer Neville Lake share the tragic news about her husband, along with a photo of their three children, Daniel, Harry, and Millie, who were 9, 5, and 2 years old when they died in the crash.
“The eyes he shared with Harry are forever closed. Daniel’s curls will never shine in the sun again. I will never see Millie’s shy smile cross his lips again. My children’s father, Edward Lake, joined our children so they could play together forever. Neville Lake tweeted on Monday.
“Mahal kita, Edward,” she wrote, which means “I love you” in Filipino.
The day before, she shared a post with a photo of children’s graves.
“It doesn’t have to be true. This cannot be,” the caption read.
The children’s grandfather, Gary Neville, also died in a car accident in suburban Toronto. Their grandmother and great-grandmother were badly injured, according to yorkregion.com, which reported Lake’s suicide.

According to the publication, her family was driving the children to their home when drunk driver Marco Muzzo T-boned their vehicle in Vaughan.
In 2021, Muzzo was reportedly released on full parole.
“I don’t have anyone left who could call me mom. You killed all my children,” Jennifer Muzzo said at her sentencing hearing in 2016, according to CityNews Toronto.
