Also left to cherish his memory are nephews, a niece and many good friends including a longtime friend from school, Will Long Jr. of Marysville.
Besides his father, he was also preceded in death by a brother, Gregory.
His body will be cremated. He will be honored in a military memorial service and his ashes will be buried in Arlington National Cemetery in Virgina at a later date.
