    I know of him and see his trucks all the time. Raka's Lawn & Landscape...

    Only 25 and had it going for himself. He had a big business going and just bought a retail/wholesale yard for landscape supplies..

    Wasn't this the guy whose roommate killed him and tried to clean him out after? I heard something briefly about it. Scary, and too bad it happened to such a successful guy.

    That name looks very familiar. If I am not mistaken he was recently featured in a landscape trade magazine. What a shame. So many people are affected by ones death. It is hard to think that there are so many hardened people in the world. What a shame.
