THE body of a man who shot himself was found by his wife and daughter, an inquest heard.
Mr David Crossland, 61, was said to have become depressed after losing his job and not being able to find another.
Mr Crossland, of Westfield Avenue, Skelmanthorpe, was found in Garbutt Wood, off Lane Hackings Green, Lower Cumberworth, on Wednesday, October 8.
In a statement to the Huddersfield inquest, Mrs Margaret Crossland said she had been married for almost 35 years.
She said her husband, a textile operative, had been made redundant in March by a firm where he had worked for almost 19 years.
The firm went out of business and he had not worked since. He began to have money worries.
Mr Crossland had tried to get another job, but had been unsuccessful.
"He became more and more upset," added Mrs Crossland. "If he had got another job I am sure he would have been fine.
"He kept saying `I cannot take any more'.
"He never threatened to kill himself before and was not taking any medication for mental illness.
"He was a loving, caring man who had not fallen out with anybody and was worried about financial affairs and his family."
Mrs Crossland said that on the morning of October 8, they had breakfast about 9am and about half an hour later her husband went out without saying goodbye.
At noon, she and her daughter, Janet, went to look for him. At Lower Cumberworth Mrs Crossland found her husband on the ground, with a shotgun across his body.
Coroner Roger Whittaker recorded a verdict that Mr Crossland killed himself.
