The man who died Thursday after a pile of road salt collapsed on him in a Bucks County storage facility was a married father of two from Mount Laurel, Burlington County.
Gustav J. Propper, 51, was "an amazing father and a true family man," according to a brief statement released by his family Friday.
"Everything he did was for his family. It's extremely tragic, and we're just beyond words," the statement read.
Propper was operating a front-end loader for International Salt, a Lackawanna County-based company that has a storage facility at the Kinder Morgan Port of Bucks County, on the Delaware River in Falls Township.
