The sister of a bulldozer operator killed in a Northern California fire described her younger brother Thursday as someone who always wanted to help.
Authorities identified the operator killed Tuesday as 35-year-old Robert Reagan of Fresno County. He died when the piece of heavy equipment overturned.
Hannah Cunnings told the Associated Press that Reagan was the kind of person who would offer to put snow chains on your car or fix an engine that needed fixing.
“Even since he was a boy he just really wanted to help people,” she said, crying.
The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office said Reagan is survived by a common-law wife and two young daughters. Cunnings said her brother and his wife also cared for a young niece.
