North Tonawanda, NY – Friends and relatives say a 21-year-old Marine from North Tonawanda has been killed in Afghanistan.
Lance Cpl. Timothy Serwinowski was serving in Marjah when he was shot by a sniper and died early Monday.
He had been a Marine since 2008 and was stationed in Jacksonville, N.C.
At North Tonawanda High School Tuesday, former teachers described Serwinowski as a quiet leader. Serwinowski graduated from the school three years ago, and his sister is scheduled to graduate on Sunday. The class is expected to pay tribute to him during the ceremony.
