A man killed in a construction accident in Northeast Minneapolis last week has been identified as a father-of-two from Savage.

Zachary "Zac" Pumper, 34, died from multiple blunt force injuries following the accident last Monday morning at a construction site at 2635 University Ave. NE.

He was working on the site of what will be East Side Storage for Adolfson and Peterson Construction, according to the Star Tribune, with the accident now under investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

His obituary reveals he was the father to a boy and a girl, and is survived by his wife Nicole.

"Zac was one of a kind," the obituary reads. "Those who knew him knew what a rare breed he was. Genuine, hardworking, trustworthy, kind-he truly had a heart of gold."

A graduate of New Prague High School, the obit described Pumper's "happy place" as the woods or a lake, and says he was an "incredibly devoted husband and father."

A GoFundMe campaign launched for his family has, as of Monday morning, raised more than $27,000.

"The loss of Zac is unimaginable and his wife and children have a long road ahead of them due to this tragedy," it reads.
