Brennan C. Gibson appears twice in his high school's 1997 yearbook _ in his senior photo and on a page headlined "Sad Endings and New Beginnings." 

"He loved being a soldier, and he was a good one," said Pastor Ken Brown. "If there was a kid that you'd want representing us out there, it was Brennan Gibson." 

Gibson, 26, of Tualatin, Ore., was killed Dec. 10 by a roadside bomb in Baghdad. He was assigned to Fort Richardson. 

Gibson attended Oregon State University in Corvallis, graduating in 2003 with a bachelor of science in art, with a special focus on graphic design. He was a member of Theta Chi fraternity. Gibson would have turned 27 on Dec. 27. "I would not describe him as flashy or having a big personality, but he was fun and he was kind," Brown said. "It's just a shame." 

He is survived by his wife, Corrina, and their newborn child, Kaden. 

Gibson was described by Brown as "one of those guys that whatever he does, he equips himself to do it well." He added: "He was going to be a father, and he was so looking forward to that."
