The man, identified as Harry Lentz by the coroner’s office, was 53 years old. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate the circumstances of the accident and of his death, which was initially said to be an accident. Lentz had worked for around 20 years as a technician at Ocean Spray on mechanical and electrical systems there. Among other things, he is said to have worked on the air conditioning system that meant some time spent on the roof maintaining it. Lentz was described by family and even by his ex wife as a good man, a caring man, and someone who will be dearly missed by the family he leaves behind.
