WHITEVILLE -- A Whiteville family is trying to figure out how their loved one fell to his death while on the job, washing windows.

Kenny Lynn, 51, died after his lift tipped over while he was doing a routine window check up at the BB&T bank in Whiteville.

Family members say window washing was second nature to Lynn. It's been a family business since 1940.

With three generations of window cleaners, Lynn's daughter says it will be tough to move on without him.

"I think it will be different without my dad. My brother, bless his heart, he has big shoes to fill and I know he can do it. Daddy had such a good reputation with so many people, Brandon, he can carry on that legacy," says Lynn's daughter Jennifer.

One bank employee says he noticed all the safety precautions Lynn was known for were not in place, saying the scaffolding was not anchored correctly.

The family has set up a fund in Lynn's memory. You can mail any donations to 167 Peacock Road, Whiteville, North Carolina  28472.
