KELLOGG, Idaho -
Shasta Orsburn is mourning the death of her fiancé, Nick Rounds, the miner killed on Monday at in the Sunshine Mining accident, one day after he was killed in the Sunshine Mine.

"We were planning to spend the rest of our lives together. Have more babies," Orsburn told KHQ's Gabe Cohen on Tuesday. "An amazing guy. Always goofy, wanted to play jokes on people. Wasn't a serious guy."

Rounds spent his whole life in Silver Valley and leaves behind a 13-year-old son and a 6-year-old step-daughter.

"She keeps saying daddy is on your shoulder and in your heart. And his son Dylan is pretty hurt. Pretty messed up."

Shasta says Rounds loved the simple pleasures, like the Seahawks, and a cold Miller Lite.

A simple, goofy man who was lost, but won't be forgotten
