Quinton, Bryan L.
Bryan L. Quinton - Colorado Springs Gazette - May 6, 2006 - Pueblo Soldier Killed During 2nd Iraq Tour - Wife Told Sergeant Died Aiding Others - Denver - An Army soldier from Pueblo on his second tour of duty in Iraq was killed this week when a roadside bomb exploded near his military vehicle, family and the Department of Defense said Friday. Staff Sgt. Gavin B. Reinke, 32, was one of two soldiers who died after the explosion Thursday in Baghdad. Also killed was Spc. Bryan L. Quinton, 24, of Sand Springs, Okla. Both men were assigned to the 5th Engineer Battalion, 1st Engineer Brigade at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. Reinke's wife, Carole Reinke, said she was told her husband died while trying to help fellow soldiers whose Humvee had been hit by an explosive moments earlier. “That's exactly the kind of person he was,” Reinke said from her home in Saint Robert, Mo., where she lives with their 3-year-old daughter, Kayleigh. “He was an amazing man. As a friend, as a father, as a husband, and it carried over to being a soldier.” She said her husband wasn't an outgoing person, but once people got to know him, he would do anything to help them. When they lived on base, he would take the time to mow the lawn of his neighbor, a single mother, when he had finished his own, she said. “Everybody that knows him is just as proud as they can be of what he did,” Reinke said.
