NORTH OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Residents of the hometown of North Ogden Mayor Brent Taylor gathered Wednesday night to pay their respects to the Utah National Guard major killed while serving in Afghanistan.
Hundreds of well-wishers held a candlelight vigil for Taylor, holding candles and other lights while walking from Weber High School to Taylor's nearby home.
Councilman Phillip Swanson told the Standard-Examiner that funeral plans hadn't been determined but that another public vigil to honor and remember Taylor is scheduled for Sunday evening at Barker Park in North Ogden.
Taylor was fatally shot last weekend by an Afghan commando he was training. His remains remain at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware where they arrived Tuesday.
The father of seven had implored Americans in his widely shared final Facebook post to vote.
