TRIBUTES have flown in for Trevor McClure, who was killed in a work­place in­ci­dent in Monto on Sun­day.

The 43-year-old Builyan man was an ex­pe­ri­enced tim­ber cut­ter, and worked reg­u­larly in the Monto district in the past decade.

His sis­ter-in-law, Mad­di­son Seck­ing­ton, has started a Go­FundMe page, with the money raised from it to go to­wards Mr McClure’s fu­neral and to help the fam­ily he has left behind.

“Trev was def­i­nitely a tough nut but fam­ily meant the world to him. He took great pride in his wife Shan­non and their three beau­ti­ful girls,” Ms Seck­ing­ton wrote on the page. “This tragic ac­ci­dent has not only left Shan­non with­out her hus­band and love of her life but has also left her a sole par­ent of their three girls – Macken­zie, Charlee and Dusti – who all now have to come to terms with a fu­ture with­out their fa­ther at such young ages.”

The Go­FundMe page can be found at go­fundme.com/293dcks.

Alarm of Mr McClure’s ab­sence was raised on Sun­day about 7pm af­ter a day on the job.

Fol­low­ing an ex­ten­sive search and res­cue oper­a­tion, Monto Po­lice Se­nior Con­sta­ble Ron Mien­t­jes said Mr McClure’s body was found near Hur­dle Gully Rd.

“He was part of a log­ging team and it ap­pears he was struck by a tree from behind,” Snr Const Mien­t­jes said. The in­ci­dent will un­dergo fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
