    That’s been all over the news here in Utah.
    Requiem In Pacem, and may the family know The Father’s peace and love.
    An impressive rack on the uniform (indicating what a go-getter hard-charger he was).
    Such a loss at all levels.
    Father, brother, son, husband, future leader and mentor. Sometimes life just ain’t fair.
