UTAH'S FALLEN WORKERS
These are a few of the men and women that went to work in Utah and were fatally injured never going home to their families at the end of their shift. We remember, honor and recognize these men and women for their dedication and hardwork. We would like to sincerely thank the families that shared their loved one's picture and their tragic loss with USMWF.

Dallas was moving traffic barrels and due to miscommunication between workers the road closer was opened for traffic. A dump truck came through and hit my husband. He was taken to the hospital and after five days we had to take him off life support, he sustained severe head trauma and a lot of broken bones. I was 8 months pregnant with our third son when he died. Every day is a struggle for me I miss him so much! I love you Dallas Always and Forever
