Late yesterday morning, the Town of Kindersley was forced to make a very unfortunate announcement regarding one of their own employees.

With very heavy hearts, they are heartbroken to see that a staff member lost his life serving the community, and shared the following message through a town release.

"The Town of Kindersley is mourning the loss of one of our own. With heavy hearts we offer our deepest condolences to the family, coworkers, friends, first responders, and community members impacted by this tragedy. We are heartbroken that our staff member lost his life serving the community. We are asking for privacy so that we can put the priority on our staff wellbeing and support towards the family. Thank you for your support."

West Central Online has reached out to the Town for comment, along with Saskatchewan Occupational Health and Safety, and you can see a poster below for information on how to help out the family affected by the recent tragic news:
