25-year-old Specialist Adam Kenneth Lorenzen’s death at the “Q-Course” is currently under investigation after he was found dead in his barracks on Monday, according to the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School.

His family remembered him as an athletic young man who loved life, his family, and the University of South Carolina, where he went to college.

“He loved his family, loved his friends, and the Gamecocks,” mother Helen Lorenzen said of her son.

While six-foot-two and 195 pounds, he was as humble as he was imposing.

“They call special forces soldiers the quiet professionals,” his mother said. “He was quiet in that he had a humble spirit.”

Lorenzen enlisted in August 2016 and was a student of the Special Forces Medical Course, meaning he would have been an 18D – Medical Sergeant if he had finished his training.

According to WLTX, he was assigned to Special Operations Medical Training Center, Special Warfare Medical Group, U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School.
