RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- One of Nevada's remaining World War II veterans has passed away.

Charles L. Tremain was among more than 30 other veterans in northern Nevada's inaugural Honor Flight to Washington D.C. in October 2012.

Tremain served in the United States Marine Corps during World War II and as a captain during the Korean War.

Tremain moved to Reno in 1972.

While on Honor Flight, Tremain was able to visit the memorials dedicated to his service. He also received a surprise visit from his granddaughter.

The memorial service will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013 at Christ Church of the Sierra.

"And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest." -Shakespeare. Reno resident, Doris Howard, my mom, is a WWII Army Nurse Corps Veteran whose ship, The U.S.S. Comfort, was hit by a kamikaze off the battle of Okinawa, known to this day as the biggest attack on women in uniform in US history. When the abandon ship was announced she turned to the soldier on the oxygen tank who would not be able to leave and said, "Don't worry, I'll stay with you." Wish she could be part of Honor Flight, too. Would mean the world to her.
