A Fort Carson soldier who was killed by a sniper in Iraq is being remembered by family and friends this week as a smiling, fun-loving person.

Twenty-six-year-old Specialist Steven J. Fitzmorris died August 25. His funeral was Tuesday in Columbia, Missouri, where he lived.

Family members, though, say he spent half of his life in Arab, Alabama, where he was an altar server at church as a boy. He also played pee wee football, was on a swim team and enjoyed in-line skating.

His mother, Rosemarie Fitzmorris-Currier, says anyone who remembered Steven would remember him as a chatterbox and a clown.

He was on a combat mission in a Baghdad neighborhood when he was hit by sniper fire.

Fitzmorris served in A Battery, 329th Field Artillery at Fort Carson.
