GEAUGA COUNTY, Ohio — Gov. Mike DeWine has ordered all U.S. and Ohio flags to be flown at half-staff throughout Geauga County in honor of a local Marine who died after an Airborne course in Georgia.

Sgt. Wolfgang “Wolf” K. Weninger, 28, a critical skills operator assigned to the Marine Raider Training Center, suffered fatal injuries during the training Tuesday.

Born and raised in Auburn, Ohio, he graduated from Kenston High School. He enlisted in the Marine Corps in May 2015. He went on to serve as an armory custodian with Combat Logisitics Battalion 2 from November 2015 to December 2018.

The flags will remain lowered until sunset on the day of his funeral.
