Heidi Montag's stepbrother, Eric O'Hara, will be honored with a military funeral today in his home town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
O'Hara, 24, a U.S. army paratrooper who served for 15 months in Iraq and a tour in Afghanistan, slipped off the roof of the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel Thursday, where he was working for his brother-in-law's snow-removal business.
"We're going to do full military honors at the funeral," said Major Tom Earnhardt, spokesman for the 82nd Airborne Division. "The firing party, the pall bearers, the folding of the flag and the presenting of the flag to the next of kin."
Heidi Montag â€" who was still in L.A. last night at the time of this posting â€" was preparing to fly to Colorado late last night with boyfriend Spencer Pratt.
The Hills star is understandably devastated over the loss. We wish Spencer, Heidi and her whole family the best during this incredibly difficult time.
