John Regelbrugge III, 49, died of injuries sustained in mudslides in Oso, Wash., in March 2014.

John Regelbrugge, 49, and his wife Kris, 44 were killed by the mudslide. Married 17 years, they were an affectionate couple who "adored each other" and hosted countless bonfires for the neighborhood, said Debby Rule, a former neighbor. "They just idolized each other. They were very close."

John was a 32-year Navy veteran, said his sister-in-law, Jackie Leighton, of Vacaville, Calif. Leighton said. The couple had three sons and two daughters. The couple's third son, who lived with his parents, "left for work at the lumber mill right before the slide happened," Leighton said.
