Kirby Tott, Rocky Mountain Rangers, R.I.P.

This from The Canadian Press:

A Canadian soldier in the reserves has died while training at a military base in Manitoba.

The military issued a news release saying that Pte. Kirby Tott died suddenly Saturday afternoon at Canadian Forces Base Shilo.

The release provides no details on the circumstances, but notes Tott was taking his basic reserve infantry training at Shilo with the 3rd Canadian Division Training Centre.

It says the death is under investigation and that an autopsy will be conducted.

The release says Tott joined the Canadian Armed Forces as a reservist with the Rocky Mountain Rangers in Prince George, B.C., in 2012.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued a statement offering his condolences to Tott’s family.

Condolences to family, colleagues and friends.
