Timothy Caughman described himself on Twitter as a can and bottle recycler, an autograph collector, and a good businessman. The 66-year-old had a knack for spotting celebrities on the streets of New York, and managed to get stars like Oprah and Wyclef Jean to pose with him in selfies. He wrote positive messages to his favorite performers, often just to tell them that he hoped they would have a good day. On Nov. 8, 2016, he posted a picture of himself standing in line to vote, dressed in a thick brown sweater and a baseball hat.

"I love america," he wrote.

Several months later, Caughman was dead.
