Kaylee Spillers died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash. She was 5.

A native of New Albany, Penn., Billy Spillers enlisted in the Navy in 2002 and served aboard two ships, the USS Stout and the USS Momsen. Last November, he transferred to the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard's Everett location. A chief petty officer, Spillers, 30, worked as a career counselor.

He was home with the kids, watching TV. Mom, Jonielle Spillers, who works as a nursing assistant, was out. Billy Spillers died in the mudslide along with daughter Kaylee, 5, Brooke, 2, and 13-year-old stepson Jovon Mangual. Another son, Jacob, 4, was rescued by helicopter.

Jovon's father, Army Staff Sgt. Jose Mangual, described his son as a very happy seventh-grader with a love for playing sports, while Kaylee and Brooke tended toward dolls and drawing.
