Miners throughout the region are honouring a fallen co-worker with a new sticker on their hardhats.
Bradley Patrick Tipper of Kimberley was honoured at a Celebration of Life in Kimberley’s McKim Middle School Saturday, August 18th.
Family say commemorative stickers were handed out to everyone in attendance, with the words “Family” and “B.Tipper” on a hardhat.
They say Tipper was a fourth generation miner and was proud to work in the industry.
Tipper lost his life in a fire two weeks ago that destroyed an apartment building in Sparwood August 9th.
He was 24 years old when he passed away.
