Dzieszuta had been working as a contractor since emigrating from Poland in 1981, said brother-in-law Jerzy Maniak, who described Dzieszuta as "a very good person with an open heart."

"I still can't believe what happened," said Maniak who described Dzieszuta as a "very handy guy" who worked six days a week.

Although they were in-laws, Maniak said he thought of Dzieszuta as a brother.

"He was always open if someone asked for help," he said.

Dzieszuta leaves behind a wife and a daughter who Maniak says turns 8 years old on Monday.

Funeral arrangement are pending.
