(WTVO) — The family of a little boy who died of cancer at age 5 is asking members of the military to attend his funeral in dress uniform this Tuesday.

Oakley Nimmo passed away on last Thursday after battling cancer for over 3 years, according to the Freedom Hard Facebook page.

Little Oakley often talked about becoming an “Army man,” and spent time dressing up in uniform.

His family is asking for any military members, past or present, to attend his funeral in Arkansas on Tuesday to pay tribute to their son.

The service will be held at 10 a.m., June 25th at Cullendale First Baptist Church, 1850 Cash Road SW, Camden, Arkansas, 71701.
