SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah Marine was among seven killed in a car bomb attack near Fallujah, Iraq, his family said.

Lance Cpl. Quinn A. Keith, 22, of Blanding, died Monday.

The military has not yet released the identities of the seven victims and could not confirm the family’s report.

Keith, a weapons specialist, joined the Marine Corps fresh out of school in Page, Ariz., where he was active in wrestling, relatives told the Deseret Morning News.

Keith was a Navajo and belonged to the Towering House clan and then to the Bitter Water clan.

“He was willing to go to war to sacrifice his life for his country and his reservation,” said his younger brother, Chad.

He was scheduled to end his tour in Iraq in just a little more than three weeks and planned to serve the remainder of his time in California.
