"Sophia's father was the breadwinner. I sold some Tupperware out of catalogues from time to time but it was really just to friends and neighbors. My husband was a car salesman. They used to say he could talk anyone into anything... he talked me into marrying him... talked me into staying with him after... (...) He watched his parents die right after everything started to happen. He couldn't deal with it... just sort of gave up on life... he... y'know. After he was... gone Sophia and I came to stay here with my sister..."
Carol about her husband.[src]

Sophia's father is a character first mentioned in Issue 3 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is Carol's former husband and Sophia's father.


Location Unknown

Sophia's father was a car salesman and the breadwinner of the family. While he was successful in convincing Carol to marry him, she only accepted the proposal out of fear of being alone. It is implied that their marriage was not a very happy one, and he would occasionally be physically abusive towards Carol, though she still dubs him a "good guy", likely due to his status as a good father and provider for the family.


Shortly after the outbreak started, he witnessed his parents get devoured by zombies. This trauma eventually caused him to give up on life, and he was killed shortly after.


Killed By

After witnessing his parents die, Sophia's father gave up on life and allowed himself to be devoured by walkers.
