Giuseppe Serra is the 40-year-old man killed in a construction accident on the Herb Gray Parkway site in LaSalle this week.
He was crushed between two objects.
Serra was born in Italy and served in the army there, but had lived in Windsor most of his life.
Onofrio Serra is a relative. He said it's been hard on the family.
"Bad because he so young, he just got married," Onofrio Serra said. "When you know a person, personally, it feels more."
Giuseppe Serra got married in December. His wife is in Eastern Europe, still waiting for a visa.
His mother was expected to fly in from Italy yesterday.
Serra's funeral will be held in Windsor June 23, but he will be buried in the town where he was born.
