  1. So sad. My fathers best friend was blind in one eye and was a high rise steel worker. He retired and fell off his roof cleaning gutters and died. Guess you never know when. RIP

  2. We’re having a hard time convincing my 85 yr old stepdad he’s too old to be on the roof.

  3. I’ve been a carpenter all my life I spent most of those years up on roofs, up ladders, scaffolds and lifts, in my late 50’s I started thinking about all the stories of older people falling and not just from up high and I decided that high work is a younger mans game and just stopped doing anything except super safe tasks where I could get hurt or worse from a fall. This is an all too frequent tragedy and I urge all you ‘older guys’ to leave the high work to the young men it’s just not safe for old timers. My condolences to the family.
