The body of Spc. Robert Tauteris Jr. arrived in his hometown of North Judson this afternoon.
Dozens of residents lined the streets to pay respects as the motorcade and hearse passed by on its way to Braman & Bailey Funeral home.
Tauteris, 44, known as Bobby to family and friends, was killed last week when the vehicle he was traveling in hit a roadside bomb. Three other soldiers perished and one was wounded in the blast: Spc. Brian Leonhardt, of Merrillville, Sgt. Jonathan Metzger of Indianapolis, and Spc. Christopher Patterson, of Aurora, Ill. The soldiers were members of the Indiana National Guard’s 713 Engineer Company, Valparaiso.
Services for this local hero are set for 1 p.m. Sunday at the Bramen & Bailey's, North Judson, with viewing beginning at 10 a.m.
