Todd E. Nunes was a member of the high school wrestling team, a good student and a talented artist. "He could draw anything he saw," said Shelah Crick, a family friend. "I had always told him one of these days he was going to work for Hallmark because he was such a good artist." Staff Sgt. Nunes, 29, of Chapel Hill, Tenn., was killed May 2 in Kirkuk, Iraq, by an improvised bomb and small-arms fire. He was based at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii. Chapel Hill Police Chief Jackie King, a member of the National Guard for 35 years who served in Operation Desert Storm, called Nunes a "super-nice kid." Survivors include his wife, Christie, an 18-month old son and a 7-year-old daughter.
