TEANECK, N.J. -- The building manager who fell from the roof of Glenpointe office complex Tuesday morning was "appreciated and loved by both our employees and tenants who knew him," said David Sanzari, president and CEO at Alfred Sanzari Enterprises.
Sanzari said he was "shocked and saddened" to confirm the death of 57-year-old Cliff Michael LeMay, who he said had gone to the roof of the seven-story building "to investigate any possible damage caused by last night’s excessive wind and weather.
"His body was found soon after on the grass in the courtyard," he said.
Police "responded immediately and spent three hours on-site conducting a full investigation," Sanzari said.
LeMay's body was found at the complex on Frank Burr Boulevard just after 7 a.m., Police Chief Robert Carney said.
"It appears that Mr. Lemay’s death can be attributed to a horrific accident and no foul play is suspected," Carney said Tuesday afternoon. "However, the investigation is ongoing and investigators are trying to determine if high winds [were] a factor in [his] death."
Sanzari, meanwhile, said; "Losing an employee and valued coworker is very difficult. Management has communicated with employees and tenants, and we are heartbroken to have lost an individual who has been part of our daily work life for more than four years.
"He was highly regarded by all of us -- a person who was appreciated and loved by both our employees and tenants who knew him.
"We at Alfred Sanzari Enterprises extend our heartfelt condolences to family members and friends of the deceased and offer our help to the family that may be needed at this difficult time."
