Worker killed in Massachusetts was Hooksett husband and father

The Associated Press

SOMERVILLE, Mass. — The family of a New Hampshire man killed at a construction site in Massachusetts says he was a generous person who loved his two daughters and was an avid hunter.

Relatives of 40-year-old Ronald "Moose" Morse of Hooksett, New Hampshire, confirmed Friday that he was the worker who died Thursday in Somerville, Mass., when a temporary hoist fell off a building. Another worker was seriously injured.

Morse leaves behind two daughters, ages 6 and 12.

His wife, Heidi Morse, says her husband was a great father and was loved by many people. Relatives say Canadian construction workers gave him his nickname of Moose because of his size — 6-foot-4 and at least 350 pounds.

The cause of the accident isn't known. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.
