His family said, "He was a very loving son who loved his family and friends, he would light up any room when he walked in and would do anything for anyone. He had a heart of gold and will be deeply missed. He was proud to serve his country. He quoted before he left for Afghanistan, 'We give our today so you can have your tomorrow'."
