The young wife of a tradie who died after being electrocuted on Saturday morning has shared a heartbreaking tribute just one year after the couple were married.
"Watch over me whilst I live out the life we were meant to live together," she wrote, sharing a picture of the couple embracing one another.
Family heartbroken by sudden loss
Mr Milner's eldest brother Jonathan shared a tribute to the "one brother of us four" who prioritised laughter and sticking together as a family.
"It pains me to know your laughs, your jokes, our time together as four brothers and a family will now only be memories," Jonathan wrote online. "It will never be the same without you."
Monique's father also commented online and vowed to "stay strong" together as a family to honour him.
"Matthew I'm so proud to call you my son-in-law and to have you taken away so suddenly hurts beyond belief," he said. "I don't have the words to express how profoundly you changed our lives by making Monique so happy."
WA Premier Roger Cook said the state needs to learn from the tragedy so it doesn't occur again.
"These sort of jobs are dangerous jobs and that's why they have so many overlays of training, of regulation and of safety arrangements.
"We have to make sure that we learn from this particular event ... any death in the workplace is tragic. No one should have to go to work and think they're not going to see their loved ones again."
