Gabriel took possession of this man at an unknown point in time.
In all of Gabriel's appearances, he has been shown possessing this man. Through his illusions, he often disguises this man in the form of other individuals.
While he was initially presumed killed along with Gabriel in 2010, it was revealed that Gabriel was still alive in 2018. The still-alive Gabriel still had this vessel, but with a more battered visage and his mouth sewn shut.
Following Gabriel's rescue by Arthur Ketch, Sam cut the stitches holding Gabriel's mouth shut, but he still retained a battered appearance. Gabriel eventually healed himself and his vessel before killing Asmodeus.
Given the revelation that the archangel blade doesn't kill the archangel vessel, it is possible that he is still alive, but it is unclear.
If he survived Gabriel's death, he was later killed when God destroyed Apocalypse World.
