Services Set for Grantsburg Native Killed in Chattanooga

Funeral services have been set for a Wisconsin native who was one of four Marines killed in last week’s shootings in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Visitation for 25-year-old Sgt. Carson Holmquist will be held at Grantsburg High School on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A private family service will follow.

The Swedberg-Taylor Funeral Home says the pallbearers will be a Marine Corps honor guard.

Holmquist was a 2008 graduate of Grantsburg High School, where he played football.

He joined the Marines in 2009 and served two tours of duty in Afghanistan.

He’s survived by his wife, Jasmine, a former UW-Superior student, and their 2-year-old son, Wyatt.

He’s the son of Thomas and La Brenda Holmquist, of Grantsburg.

Gov. Scott Walker has ordered that flags be flown at half-staff until sunset Saturday in Holmquist’s honor.
