The Lallier family eloquently expressed their feelings about SPC Jarrod Allen Lallier: “God blessed our family with 20 wonderful years with our beloved son. On June 18, 2012, Jarrod was killed in action in Zharay District, Afghanistan, paying the ultimate sacrifice for the country he so dearly loved. Our son felt called to serve his country at an early age, and never wavered in his belief to serve our God and country. It came as no surprise that Jarrod was willing to serve friends, family, and acquaintances. Jarrod made friends wherever he went. With a quick wit, and a smile, Jarrod could put any person at ease, and make anybody feel welcome. In his short 20 years, he lived life fully, never compromising who he was, or his values. He dearly loved his family and friends.”
Jarrod was passionate about serving Christ. He adored his family and friends, the military, soccer, animals, fishing, and camping. Jarrod welcomed big family gatherings where he embraced the company of those around him and celebrated life. Jarrod had a tremendous sense of humor, loved to laugh even if he was laughing at himself.
SPC Lallier was born July 3, 1991 in Spokane, WA to Kim and Gary Lallier.
“Jarrod had the spirit of service that shined through all aspects of his life,” said Tony Lamanna, director of Honor Flight. The Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices.
