Service set for slain Colville soldier

Services for Staff Sgt. Wyatt A. Goldsmith, 28, who was killed in action Friday in Afghanistan, have been set for 1 p.m. July 26.

The memorial service will be held at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 320 N. Maple St. in Colville, said Bill Danekas of Danekas Funeral Chapel and Crematorium.

Danekas said the family finalized the plans on Monday evening.

Goldsmith, a Green Beret who also was a ski patroller at 49 Degrees North Mountain Resort, was killed when his unit was attacked by insurgents firing rocket-propelled grenades, according to the U.S. Department of Defense.
