Friend says fallen Navy SEAL lived for training others

Posted: Updated:

The Navy SEAL and expert sniper killed at a gun range in Erath County was passionate about sharing his expertise with others.

Chris Kyle was brilliantly trained and he loved sharing his knowledge with everyone, from law enforcement officers to beginners. Those who knew him say he died doing what was truly in his heart.

Bill Waybourn was a close friend of Kyle's, and about to team up with him on a huge project.

"With all the controversy going on with guns and schools, we had a plan of trying to train a thousand teachers or a thousand people who work for the school systems," Waybourn said.

Kyle's website describes the massive Concealed Handgun License Class for teachers, scheduled for April, as the "largest CHL class ever held." Waybourn said training people was Kyle's passion. He also cared for others and often sought out a veteran to offer him help.

But more than training or his book, Waybourn said Chris loved to talk about what gave him the most strength.

"By the end of the conversation of course he was talking about his wife and his family, as he always did, and how wonderful they were."
