A spokeswoman for Calderdale Council would only say: "The council can confirm that it is undertaking an investigation into this incident."
A DHL spokesman added: "DHL can confirm that one of its employees was involved in a fatal incident on the morning of Saturday, December 22 in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.
"We offer our deepest sympathies to the bereaved family, with whom we are in ongoing contact and are co-operating fully with everyone involved in the investigations.
"However, while this is underway we are unable to comment further."
Now the devastated wife of Mr Jarman, from Westwoodside, has paid tribute to her husband. Susan Jarman, his wife of 43 years, said she was heartbroken by the news.
The 61-year-old said: "My world has fallen apart.
"We were very close and a happy couple.
"Our marriage had its ups and its downs, but we got through everything together.
"There is now a big gap in my life that will never be filled.
"He was like two big arms protecting me and I could rely on him for everything."
Mrs Jarman met her husband in 1968 at the Campbells dance hall in Scunthorpe.
She said: "He used to work as a store person, but then took his HGV licence and spent the majority of his life as a lorry driver.
"He enjoyed driving and being on the roads and was a very easy-going man."
The couple got married in 1969 at the former register office on Oswald Road, Scunthorpe.
They had two children, Christopher and Russell.
Mrs Jarman said: "He was a keen fisher and wood turner. He built a lot of my furniture and was a member of the Scunthorpe wood turning group.
"He made my coffee table, chest of drawers and other pieces of furniture from scratch.
"Keith's other main love was his two grandchildren – Ryan and Abigail.
"He loved playing with them.
"He was a quiet man who was a lot of fun to be around.
"I will miss Keith very much."
