“He was a fine soldier who fought with valor and bravery on the battlefield,” his family wrote on Facebook. “We have been told that he was known to be at the front of his team leading his men as he would never ask his men to do anything that he wasn’t willing to do.”

Partridge documented his journey to Ukraine on social media, writing that he landed in Germany on April 26, made his way to Poland the next day and arrived in Ukraine in late April. 

Public social media posts ended at that point for operations and security reasons, but his sister wrote that he messaged her occasionally to let her know that he “missed his children and wife something fierce.”

“I know his soul has found peace,” his sister, Jenny Partridge Corry, wrote in a tribute. 

“He was always good for a joke, witty banter and the occasional serious conversation. He stayed true to his faith and spiritual convictions till his dying days.”
