Jeffrey Bobzien had been working on storage tanks for several years before a construction site accident killed him weeks after his 54th birthday.

Rick Bobzien, Jeffrey's brother, got the call during a dinner at home that his brother had been killed.  Rick knew that his brother's job working on storage tanks was dangerous, but never imagined that it would take his life.

A metal pipe fell on Jeffrey, killing him at a job site in Corpus Christi, TX.

Jeffrey's father explained, "To see your son laying in a casket is not an easy thing to do.  Even being a brother it's not an easy thing to do.  Unless you go through it, I don't think anybody could imagine what it's like."

Jeffrey left behind his wife and stepson.
