Posted: Updated:

A long-time Waverly city employee died on the job Wednesday.

Dan Sinnwell was a senior engineering tech employee for the city. He collapsed at a work site Wednesday morning.

He was taken to the Waverly Health Center and pronounced dead.

Authorities are still investigating the incident.

Sinnwell worked for the city for 37 years.

"He was well known in and outside of Waverly for his friendly approach and willingness to solve problems," a representative of the city wrote.

City officials have contacted the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It's unclear at this point if OSHA is actively involved in the incident.

He is survived by his wife Sue, two sons Jeremiah and Jason, and 5 grandchildren.

Funeral services are being planned at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Waverly.
