Kay LeFlore never thought he'd bury his youngest son Kyle. 

"It's a job I never thought I would have to do," he said. "The murder of my son was the worst week of my life." 

On Jan. 6, Kyle LeFlore, an Army Staff Sergeant, returned home for the holidays after being stationed in South Korea. He was shot and killed at the Reign Lounge, leaving behind a wife and young son. 

Omaha Police say 27-year-old Larry Goynes opened fire in the Florence neighborhood causing what Kay LeFlore called a "senseless death over jewlery." Goynes was arrested on a first-degree murder warrant on Jan. 12. 

"I can't reiterate enough how proud I was of Kyle," Kay said. "We don't want this great person to be forgotten and we don't want this senseless act to go unpunished." 

LeFlore's funeral is Tuesday at the Greater Bethel Temple.
