CORVALLIS, Ore. – Hundreds paid their respects Sunday to fallen Oregon soldier Cody Patterson.

His funeral service was held in Corvallis Sunday.

Before the service, hundreds of people lined the city’s streets holding flags and signs to honor the 24-year-old killed in Afghanistan earlier this month.

The auditorium was packed with family and friends as speakers remembered the Philomath native for his great sense of humor and charisma.
