Evan Fitzgibbon was a star football player for Foundation Academy in Florida. He would graduate and take his talents to West Point where he would exceed expectations and eventually land in Army Ranger Training.
Unfortunately, Fitzgibbon and Staff Sergeant George Taber were killed by a falling tree during a storm at Yonah Mountain outside of Dahlonega in North Georgia. Both soldiers were pronounced dead at a hospital.
Fitzgibbon was a member of the National Honor Society, Student Leadership Institute, and captain of the football team in 2017.
A vigil was held tonight at Foundation Academy and his family, friends and teachers gathered to remember the hero.
