NISSWA -- A 57-year-old Nisswa man died after an apparent accidental fall at his home, the Lake Shore Police Department reported today.
Gary Duane Foss was found dead in his garage Saturday. He was last seen after lunch. He was doing electrical work in the garage, but there is no indication the accident involved electricity. Foss' wife, Dianne, found him in the garage, which is detached from the home, and called for help.
The Lake Shore Police Department responded to a call to the scene at 3:25 p.m. Saturday. Foss apparently fell from a stepladder while working in his garage, the police reported. Foss was a partner at the Re Mandt and Foss accounting firm in Nisswa.
Both the Lake Shore Police Department and Cass County Sheriff's Department investigated the incident. An autopsy was scheduled to determine the official cause of death.
