PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A Liberian immigrant who died working at a Salvation Army store that collapsed in Philadelphia is being remembered as a hardworking man and devoted husband.

A stepdaughter confirms that 68-year-old Borbor Davis is among the six people killed in the demolition accident Wednesday.

Stepdaughter Maryann M. Mason says Davis was married to her mother for several years. She says "they looked so good together."

And she says Davis "loved my mom so much."

City officials say Davis was killed along with five women when an adjacent wall from a taller building being demolished next door crumbled onto the store, trapping Salvation Army workers and customers in piles of debris.

Mason says Davis was from Monrovia, Liberia. She says he loved working at the thrift shop.
