He said: "He was not receptive to the advice from mental health services and was of the opinion that he did not require any further help.
"For years, Mr Becher suffered from mental health problems.
''The evidence clearly suggests he intended to end his life because he was beyond medical help."
The hearing was told there was no evidence to suggest anyone else was involved and there were no suspicious circumstances.
Mr Layton concluded that Mr Becher had killed himself by hanging.
