Kalispell soldier killed in Iraq, family says
Advertisements [?]
By the Associated Press


Kane Funke, 20, was killed in combat late Thursday by an "incendiary device," his aunt, Kathy Funke of Polson, said.

The family was notified by the military of his death, but planned to meet with Marine officials Saturday for more details. Kathy Funke said relatives were told it could take up to 10 days for his body to be returned.

Kathy Funke said her nephew spoke with his mother, Stephanie Funke, two days ago and told her he was scheduled for a trip home in two weeks.

"Now he's coming back, but not the way we wanted him to," Kathy Funke said.

Survivors also include a younger sister.

Kane Funke's rank was not immediately known, but relatives said he joined the Marines last year and went to Iraq this winter.
