SIERRA VISTA — At a press conference this morning, the family of slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie remembered him as a man who lived a life of service for his God, his family and his county.

About 30 of Ivie’s immediate and extended family members have traveled to Sierra Vista to grieve and give comfort to his widow and two young children. His older brothers, Rick and Chris Ivie, spoke at the press conference at Cochise College.

"Nick was a loving husband, father and a friend to everybody," Chris Ivie said. "He was a favorite uncle, he was that kind of a person."

With more than a dozen of Nicholas’ immediate family behind them, Rick and Chris Ivie recalled their little brother as someone to look up to.

My heart and prayers go out to you. Rest in peace Agent Ivie. “And God shall
wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the
former things are passed away.” (Rev. 21:4)
