Ironworkers turn out for funeral of NH colleague killed in construction accident


MANCHESTER - More than 1,000 ironworkers from around New England attended the funeral of a Hooksett man who was killed in a construction accident, shouting his nickname and applauding in his honor.

Many wore their work helmets and colorful shirts as they accompanied his casket from St. Joseph's Cathedral, giving him a round of applause before chanting "Moose, Moose, Moose!"

The workers filled the street and many walked alongside the hearse as it left the church.

Ronald "Moose" Morse, 40, was killed at a construction site in Massachusetts where he was working when a temporary hoise fell off a building. Another worker was seriously injured.

Morse's wife Heidi Morse, has said previously that her husband was a great father and was loved by many people.

He got his nickname "moose" because of his large size - he was 6-foot-4.
