COTTLEVILLE, Mo. — Mourners gathered over the weekend to remember a St. Charles soldier killed in Afghanistan.

Sgt. Denis Kisseloff died May 14 when his unit was attacked with a rocket-propelled grenade and fire from small arms. He was 45 and was assigned to the 1141st Engineer Company in Kansas City, Mo.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the Rev. James P. Callahan said Saturday during the funeral that Kisseloff "gave his life for our nation because he believed in this nation and he believed in the people of America."

Afterward, scores of people came to pay their respects as his body made its way to the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.

Kisseloff leaves behind two young children, Serena and Alexandr. Their mother died of an illness about two years ago.

The two are living with their grandparents in St. Charles County.

Army Sgt. Denis D. Kisseloff was killed in action on 5/14/10.
