He was reportedly swimming in the West Fork of the Red River, and they believe he got wrapped up in the current of a swimming hole. Divers searched the water for four hours but called off the search Saturday night due to darkness.

“The entire Division Artillery team is saddened by the loss of an outstanding Soldier. He was a valued team member who had the ability to light up any room he was in,” said Colonel Patrick Moffett commander 101st Division Artillery. “His commitment to getting better every day was respected by his subordinates, peers, and leaders. Our deepest condolences go out to his family. They are in our thoughts and prayers during this tragic time.”
