A 33-year-old father of two little girls was killed when his clothing got caught in a sweep auger. Justin Kunc of Western, died while working in a grain bin three miles southwest of Crete.

Emergency workers cut Kunc free, but he later died at a Crete hospital. Justin's sister, Amber Shane, says she can't believe her brother is gone.

She said "Farming has been a dream of Justin's since he was little and every day I know that what he worked for was someday having his own farm." She adds "And for Justin to be killed in a farm accident is pretty scary because he was the safe one the protective one. I was the one that always got hurt "

The Kunc family has set up an account at a local bank to help out the two small children Justin left behind. Donations can be made at all Farmers and Merchants Bank locations.
