FORT COLLINS, Colo. -

A Colorado Marine killed in a crash in central Utah last week was on his way home to surprise his little brother on the first day of school.

Twenty-year-old Lance Cpl. Brennan Ching of Fort Collins, Colorado, died Friday in a rollover crash near Salina, Utah. He was traveling with a fellow Marine from Las Flores, California. The second Marine survived and was taken to a hospital.
    
The Coloradoan reports that Ching planned to take 8-year-old Alex Vicary to his first day of second grade.
    
Mother Sue Vicary says Alex talked about his older brother every day and came up with different wishes to try to bring him home.
    
The newspaper published a story about Ching coming home to surprise Alex last March after the boy sent a letter to the Easter bunny.
