A Lockport Soldier who drowned last week near Fort Hood, Texas was laid to rest Monday.

Strangers holding american flags showed their respect as the funeral procession for Private First Class Christopher Kent Heinz passed by.  The 25-year-old died while swimming with friends two weeks ago.

He joined the army in January of 2012 and was a combat engineer assigned to the first Cavalry Division.
