Heidi Montag’s late stepbrother, Eric O’Hara, will be honored with a military funeral Wednesday in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
O’Hara, 24, a U.S. army paratrooper who served for 15 months in Iraq and a tour in Afghanistan, passed away when he slipped off the roof of the Steamboat Grand Resort, where he was working for his brother-in-law’s snow-removal business.
“We’re going to do full military honors at the funeral,” Major Tom Earnhardt, spokesman for the 82nd Airborne Division, said.
“The firing party, the pall bearers, the folding of the flag and the presenting of the flag to the next of kin,” Earnhardt he told Us Weekly.
Heidi Montag — who was still in L.A. as of last night — was preparing to fly to her home state of Colorado for the funeral Spencer Pratt.
Understandably, The Hills star is completely devastated over the loss. We wish her family the best during this incredibly difficult time.
