MILTON - Funeral services for Spc. Steven Lloyd Dupont will be held Wednesday at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Milton.

The 20-year-old soldier died in Rangrizan, Afghanistan, while nearing the end of a one-year tour of duty with the 3rd Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, stationed in Vilseck, Germany.

The Army said Dupont died from injuries suffered after insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device.

He is survived by his parents, Charles and Brenda Dupont, and brother, Robert Owen Dupont.
