An Eglin airman was killed Sunday in Afghanistan.

Tech. Sgt. Daniel L. Douville, 33, died June 26 as a result of injuries suffered from an improvised explosive device on the border of the Nad ‘Ali district of Helmand province. He was assigned to the 96th Civil Engineer Squadron.

The Fort Walton Beach resident was an explosive ordnance disposal technician remembered by his former EOD instructors as having a quiet presence.

He and his wife, LaShana, were married for 14 years. In a phone interview Monday afternoon, LaShana said Daniel was the epitome of what a man should be.

“He was just a great father and a loving husband,” she said.

Douville, a native of Louisiana, had served in the Air Force since 1997.

The couple’s oldest, Jadelynn, will start high school in the fall. She, Daniel Jr. and Ayjah attended Liza Jackson Preparatory School this year.
