Relationship to the deceased:
The 54-year-old recently worked as the chief operating officer for a local distribution center where he managed the production floor. He leaves behind his wife, Stefanie, and two sons, Anthony and Paul. His former employer and close friend James Lyman described him as "hardworking and caring," and told BuzzFeed News the staff is "completely distraught at this loss." "He was a very productive and stern manager but he was also very fatherly to all the employees," Lyman told BuzzFeed News. "The personality on the production floor was kind of different than the personality in the break room."
