Sergeant Major Edmond V. Iwanicki, US Army, Retired

Edmond Iwanicki, of Killeen, Texas,  passed away on June 14, 2010 at the age of 63.

Edmond had proudly served his country in the United States Army and retired at the rank of Sergeant Major.  Among his assignments was duty in the G4 office of III Corps.

Funeral services were held on June 20, 2010 at Heritage Funeral Home in Harker Heights, Texas.

On June 21, 2010 interment service with full military honors was conducted at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery at Killeen.  Present were Patriot Guard Riders who formed a line of American flags around the committal shelter to honor this veteran and to welcome the arriving family and friends.

An Army bugler played taps.  An Army rifle detail fired three volleys of fire, representing Duty, Honor and Country.  The Army honor guard then folded an American flag into a tight triangle and presented it to Edmond’s beloved wife, Jolanda, on behalf of the United States Army and a grateful nation.

The urn containing Edmond’s cremains was  placed into a niche in the columbarium wall by his family as the American flag at the top of the hill flew at half-staff in his honor.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, one daughter, a grandson and many other dear family and friends.

With thanks to the Killeen Daily Herald for biographical information.
