BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A Prentiss County Electric lineman who died on the job last spring was honored Friday.
Jamie Guin was electrocuted back in April trying to restore power.
Mississippi Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley presented a resolution to Guin's widow Anna Kate and their twin daughters.
"He loved anything with tree cutting and tractors," said Anna Kate Guin. "He loved his job as a lineman and helping others."
Guin spent 13 years with the company and died on April 4 trying to restore power on Highway 30.
"Too many times we don't consider and think enough about the sacrifice and the danger that our utility workers go into," added Presley.
The resolution was presented on behalf of the Public Service Commissioners Office and the state.
