He was 45 years old, married, and the father of two sons, ages 11 and 16 months.
From the website of his family:
In a eulogy posted by friend and co-worker, Shreveport Police Cpl. R.T. Edwards writes, "Lieutenant Colonel Greg Washam: Greg has fought this last battle with all his heart, giving no quarter, but today he received the order to withdraw. Greg ignored the order refusing to give up his position until the very last minute. On the 20th day of June in the year 2010; LtCol GD Washam broke camp and withdrew to his final position. He has rallied with those who fell before him, he is in very good company. "All the way Sir!" He will be missed but never forgotten."
There's been a trust fund set up to help the family. Go here.
