Retired Marine Fred Kaffenberger, 80, died at Leavenworth National Cemetery last weekend while decorating veterans' graves with wreaths, according to Fox 4.

Kaffenberger, who was a member of The Sons of the American Revolution, was in full uniform at the cemetery with the group, taking part in the Wreaths Across America program.

Kaffenberger died suddenly, and doctors still aren’t sure exactly why.

"This is the way he would’ve chosen to go. Wouldn’t you want to go doing what you love to do and go in an instant?" Wanda Kaffenberger asked. "Yeah, I would too."

Every December, Wreaths Across America places tens of thousands of wreaths on graves at Arlington National Cemetery and other veterans cemeteries across the nation.
