NAPA, Calif. — A soldier from Napa who died in Afghanistan is being remembered as a fun-loving person who never complained.

Defense Department officials say Army Sgt. Chase Stanley and three other soldiers were killed July 14 when an improvised explosive device struck their vehicle in Zabul province.

Lance Bubak, 21, who was a year behind Stanley at Capell Valley Elementary School, said his friend could be a joker. He recalled a camping trip when Stanley gave everyone nicknames that stuck for the rest of the weekend.

Mandy Epperson, another friend, said he could brighten up any party.

Stanley was based out of Fort Bragg, N.C. He had previously served in Iraq.
