(Decatur-AP) -- More than 100 people packed a church in Conyers to remember a 22-year-old man killed in an ambush attack on the 507th Maintenance Company in central Iraq.

After the service, Kevin Addison said he looked up to his son -- Specialist Jamaal Addison -- as a family leader. He told a reporter at his home in Decatur that his son was "a very kind and gentle individual."

The younger Addison was killed Sunday. White's Chapel United Methodist Church -- where last night's memorial service was held -- had pledged to raise more than one-thousand dollars for two-year-old Jamaal Junior.

Those attending the service donated more than $1,300. Jamaal Addison was one of two soldiers from Fort Bliss, Texas, killed in the ambush. The other was 22-year-old Private First Class Howard Johnson Junior of Mobile, Alabama.

Five others have been captured as prisoners of war, and eight are missing in action. Although Jamaal Addison's unit had not expected to encounter combat, his father said he had the leadership skills to handle military challenges.
