First Day At Work
No family in Frontier was more sadly smitten by the explosion than that of Andrew Lupcho, who lost his life along with his two sons, George and Joe.  Joe had been off duty for two weeks suffering from an injured knee, sustained in the mine, and had just been released the morning of the accident when he was killed.

  1. My name is Shawn Lupcho. These were my great grandfather and two of great uncles. My grandfather, Paul Lupcho, was the son of Andrew and the brother of George and Joe.
