But sometimes, like today, Coffee Dad gets serious. He speaks of his son’s untimely death. Like here:

What I think we can ascertain from his tweets about his son, is that his death was motorcycle related, his son was married, and Dad takes some responsibility.

Some notes here: as Steve McDonald (@_spmcdonald) points out, his son’s birthday is 7/17 (could someone search relevant records?), and it seems like 580 or so of Coffee Dad’s 586 tweets are coffee related.
*UPDATE* We’ve got more. Matt (@shmeelz) found this article about a man who is upset about the death of his son, who was killed in a motorcycle accident. It doesn’t end there. This was the last tweet from @CoffeeDadsSon, and it happened on March 16th:
