He was a devoted husband who married his high school sweetheart. He called his wife every week from Iraq, but never described to her the dangers he faced on patrols because he didn't want his family to worry about him.

He loved life and loved his family, including seven siblings. He had a smile "that would go on for miles" and he cannot be replaced.
