A special escort will honor Sergeant Jorden Thomas Williams in Guernsey County on Friday.

The 25-year-old Sgt. Williams passed away January 2 while stationed in Fort Wainwright, Alaska.

The Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office said they’ll escort Sgt. Williams from John Glenn International Airport in Columbus to Guernsey County at approximately 2:30pm.

They’ll travel along Dewey Avenue Bridge to the Guernsey County Courthouse and make a right on SouthGate Parkway for anyone wishing to pay their respects.

Sgt. Williams was a military working dog handler with the the 549th Military Working Dog Detachment, 17th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion at Fort Wainwright.

He was assigned there in 2014 and had deployed to Quatar and Afghanistan during his time in Alaska.

He was a 2012 graduate of Meadowbrook High School.
