William E. Brown''s mother said he always loved things with wheels and engines. Even a former principal can attest to that. "He was only here for a little while but he was a real likable guy and kind of mechanically inclined," said Gary Harris. "He climbed underneath my vehicle one time while he was here and tried helping me figure out what was wrong with it." Brown, 25, of Phil Campbell, Ala., was killed June 23 in Taji during a mortar attack. He was a 2002 high school graduate and was assigned to Fort Carson. He was on his second tour. Brown''s mother, Theresa Kyser, said everyone that met her son liked him. "He was a little mischievous, but he was so likable that you couldn''t help but like him," she said. "He was always making you laugh." She said she will also remember her son''s loving eyes and his caring ways. When he was about 9, he spotted a turtle crossing the road in front of their car. "William made me stop the car and get the turtle off the road so it wouldn''t get hit. He was such a compassionate person." Brown also is survived by his wife, Rachel, and two sons, 6-year-old Ethan and 2-year-old Tyler.
