A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to assist the family of Mark Biglin, the man killed Monday in a workplace accident in the southeast oilpatch.

Kayla Kopacz, who launched the campaign, wrote that her best friend Nickie lost her loving partner. Kopacz also praised Biglin for how he raised his children Tykayah (18), Breck (15) and Piper (six).

Biglin wanted to be a mechanic but has been working on the oil rigs to support his family.

“Nickie is one of a kind and has been putting herself through school to be a social worker from home,” Kopacz wrote.

Kopacz asked for people to please support the family in this sudden tragedy, as the road ahead will be very difficult.

“Piper, Breck, and Tykayah are amazing children with huge hearts that will always have a piece of Mark with them forever as their guardian angel,” she wrote.

As of Thursday morning, the campaign had raised $9,825 of its $100,000 goal, with 76 donors contributing in a little more than a day.
