He died May 14, in Sanjaray, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when enemy forces attacked their unit with an improvised explosive device. He is survived by his adoring wife Vicki and his daughter Audrey. Though he died a hero attempting to help his fellow soldiers, it is important to note that he also lived a hero. He traveled the globe and made friends wherever he went. He never hesitated to help anyone in need and enjoyed mentoring anyone willing to learn. The strength of his character and qualities of humor and kindness will be remembered. This world that he loved and got to know so well will never be the same.
