On behalf of RCG, I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the young man who was killed yesterday. I apologize for not having his name, it is now released and I heard it on the news, but it is not in the paper from this morning nor can I find it in the internet at the moment. But I didn’t want to delay our message of sympathy and sincere condolences.
He was a young 31 year old man who relocated here
from my home State, Pennsylvania, to work at Microsoft. A freak accident. An upper portion of a crane fell across 108th Avenue in Downtown Bellevue, crashed into his apartment building, smashing his apartment and killing him.
My prayers go out to his family and also to his friends and co-workers here in our town. I will add his name below so others can add his family to their prayers, when it appears in tomorrow’s paper.
The young man’s name is Matthew Ammon.
Correcton: He was born in Pittsburgh and did work there at one time, but relocated here from a job in Kansas City.
