A fallen sailor was brought to his final resting place in Oklahoma Friday night.

Tan Truong Huynh was one of the seven sailors killed earlier this month in the USS Fitzgerald crash off the coast of Japan.

Huynh, 25, never lived in Oklahoma, but according to the Patriot Guard Riders, his mother and sister moved to the Tulsa area while he was in the service and they want him buried here.

"It's hard sometimes, especially with the active duty soldiers that pass. It's great that the community comes out and you see the outpouring for the family and for the military in general I know that's really one thing that tugged at  me,"  said Michael Sturgill, Former U.S. Navy Reserve. 

Huynh was born in Vietnam, and grew up in California and Connecticut, according to his obituary.

"Tan did not talk much, but when he did, it was always something worth hearing," the obituary says.Visitation will be next Wednesday at Floral Haven Funeral Home, in Broken Arrow.
