You never know when your number is up!
My boss & friend was working on a RTU getting ready to run a new t-stat wire, started unrolling while walking backwards & didn't realize there was a skylight behind him.
He fell about 40' to his death.
Say a prayer for his family, his lovely wife & two daughters, one is graduating this year & the other is in middle school.
If there is such a thing as a perfect boss, this guy was it. He never bird dogged anyone & was always helpful, he had a good sense of humor & never got down on anyone for not knowing somthing, he would just patiently help.
I still can't believe it, I'm still num. Just don't understand, he was a good person.
So long pal...
All my leon freaked out!
I will think of him in my thoughts. The way you speak of him, it sounds like he was a true gentlemen.
My heart goes out to his family. May God give them the strength to overcome this tragety.

That is so horrible to hear. Our prayers are with the family and those who knew him and his loved ones. It is never understandable to us when we lose our family and friends and even the people we don't know under any circumstances. Every day we leave our homes to go about our daily duties reguardless of our occupation without thought of never returning until it happens to our breathren. That is when we are reminded we are never always in control. Peace be with you.
Sorry to hear that, a realy tragic death. Our thoughts are with his family.
Sorry for your loss. This is truly a tragedy. I too, have a wife and two children and cannot not imagine what his family is going through. I guess it is always in the back of our minds. What we do for a living and the dangers that go with the job. It could happen to any of us. God bless your friends soul. From what you have stated, he was a good man.

that's a real danger here, on snow covered roof's
happened to a co-worker... he was lucky to fall into an office area , only 10'
Guys and Gals,
I moved this to the General forum as I feel it is something that all of our members should read.
A truly sad event has taken place. My family will be praying for his family. I know how many times I have had near misses either on a roof or on the submarine.
Stop and hug the wife and kids today.
Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.
That's a good observation.

My prayer is that his loss will inspire those who knew him to get prepared, today.

Just hugged my Bride, felt good.
My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.
We all can imagin, as technicians, how this could happen. Let us learn from this tragic accident. My prays will be offered to his journey to heaven at Mass tomorrow.
May God be with him. Very sad.

I am sorry to hear that. It is one of the dangers of the job that we all need to be aware of. My thoughts and prayers are going out to his family.

Sorry for the loss of what seems to be an excellent man. My prayers are with all who are involved in this tragedy.
