Steven Combs, assigned to the Providers of Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 30, who graduated from the University of Colorado, is one of three sailors who lost their lives when their C-2A Greyhound crashed while conducting a routine transport flight carrying passengers and cargo from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni to USS Ronald Reagan.

The U.S. Navy on Saturday identified Lt. Steven Combs as one of the men killed following the crash of a C-2A Greyhound en route to the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan on Wednesday.

Bill Hendrick, an alumni of Kappa Sigma, confirmed that Combs had been a member of the fraternity and referred questions to Aaron Peele, who is a former president at the CU chapter of the fraternity.

Peele said in an email that Combs’ family had asked that any press inquires be referred to the Navy’s public affairs office, which did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on Saturday.
