While the City is preparing for the holiday season, this local family is grappling with a terrible loss.

Colleen Roberts, of Lockport, lost her husband, Brett,  while he was working at Exelon's LaSalle Generating Station near Marseilles Nov. 12.

“This is devastating and absolutely heartbreaking,” said Kit Evans, Colleen’s sister. “It was just so unexpected. Brett was just 37 years old and one of the best human beings I’ve ever known.”
