Rodger Vonk, 53, of Newton died today after falling through the roof this morning at the Colfax Sale Barn.
Colfax Chief of Police Andy Summy late this afternoon released Vonk's identity following completion of the notification of next of kin.
Summy said Vonk stepped through a fiberglass panel - designed to let natural light into the building - while working on the roof of the building shortly before 9 a.m. this morning. The panel collapsed and Vonk fell approximately 20 feet onto the cement floor of the building.
He was transported by Colfax ground ambulance to Skiff Medical Center in Newton where he was later pronounced dead.
Vonk was a lifelong Newton resident, having graduated from Newton Senior High School in 1976.
