There’s a picture of Marine Staff Sgt. Kendall Damon Waters-Bey with his 10-year-old son, Kenneth, holding a fish they caught last year.

“He loved his son,” said the Marine’s father, Michael Waters-Bey. “He went into the Marines right out of high school to be able to provide for his son.”

Waters-Bey, 29, of Baltimore, was killed March 20 in a helicopter crash near the Iraq border.

He was the oldest of five children and the only son. In high school he loved swimming and track, and his sisters called him a jokester. Besides his son from a previous marriage, he left behind his wife of 11 months, Belinda.
