Jay (Joshua) Stirckland was a friend of our family. He was a devoted husband and father of
three darling little ones. This tragedy is unthinkable. Sorrow is such a weak word for the pain
his friends and family are feeling. Our deepest appreciation for his service and sacrifice. He
will never be forgotten. God be with his wife, Heather and their young children.
