LEHIGH ACRES, FL.--"He always seemed like no matter how busy he was he always had time for you, and he was really busy," said National Guard Soldier Joshua Cline.
Every now and then you will meet someone, a special person, who leaves such an impact on your life you'll never forget them.
"He was just a really good guy," said Cline.
That guy to Cline, was 36-year old Seargent First Class Ommy Irizzary.
"He was actually the first person I met from Fort Stewart when I got off the plane and got relocated to WTU, which is the warrior transition site for wounded warriors," said Cline.
Irizzary and his 9-year old daughter, Oceana, were both killed after this plane crash landed on Caspersen Beach near Venice Sunday afternoon.
To Cline it's ironic that this father from Puerto Rico and his little girl would leave the world together.
"I heard that his daughter was with him and it made a lot of sense because she was always with him. Whenever he came she was daddies little girl, when she was inside she was wearing his military cap and running around. He is just a really good guy. Even when he doesn't have to be you know," said Cline.
Which is why this loss is so hard on Cline.
A friend and a fellow soldier, who left such an impact is now gone.
Cline says the world needs more men like Irizzary..
"I think we can use a lot more and that is why I said my first thing is that this world really took a hit," said Cline.
