Maxton W. Soviak, 22, Ohio
U.S. Navy Hospitalman Maxton W. Soviak from Berlin Heights, Ohio, was a graduate of Edison High School.
“Our nation mourns the loss of Navy Corpsman Max Soviak, whose uncommon courage in the face of unfathomable danger ensured the safe passage of countless civilians. We will never be able to repay the debt we owe him, but we will be forever grateful for his willingness to serve when America needed him most. Our hearts go out to his family during this time, and we lift them up in prayer that they may find comfort in his memory,” Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) said in a statement.
Edison High School Superintendent Thomas C. Roth said Maxton was “well respected and liked by everyone who knew him.”
“Max was full of life in everything he did. Our schools and local community are mourning the loss of Max. He and his family are in all of our thoughts and prayers,” he wrote in a letter obtained by Action News.
OHIO Navy Medic Killed in Kabul Blast
I lived in Milan and worked near there for a period of time. Great community/part of the state full of some really good people.
LORD, please have mercy on his soul. Ease his family's loss. Welcome him with open arms.
Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be they name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us out trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, The Power, and the Glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Its just sad...
Rest in peace Devil Doc!
Soviak's remains are scheduled to arrive at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport around 10:25 a.m. on Wednesday.
A private procession will begin at the airport and it will travel west on the Ohio Turnpike to U.S. Route 250 at Exit 118, at which point the public procession will begin.
Community members who are interested in attending the procession are encouraged to stage along the processional route no later than 11:30 a.m.
The Navy says the public processional route will proceed south on U.S. Route 250, go past Edison High School where Soviak graduated in 2017 before eventually arriving at Morman-Hinman-Tanner Funeral Home where the procession will end.
