Honor student with plans to enlist
Hoping to join the Navy and to take his girlfriend and their unborn daughter with him, he graduated from high school early — with honors. His family described him as a “loving son and brother” who took “amazing care of his sisters.”
According to police, his girlfriend was smoking marijuana one night with a 17-year-old boy at Runyon Lake in Pueblo, Colorado. He confronted them.
