SPERRY, Okla. — A Sperry soldier found dead in his barracks room at an Arizona Army post had been recovering from surgery to remove a tumor on his brain stem, his father said.

Pvt. Paul Timothy Muse, 22, was found in his bed Nov. 8 during a morning inspection at the Warriors in Transition unit at Fort Huachuca, located southeast of Tucson, Ariz.

The unit provides physical and mental health help to soldiers wounded in action and other troops recovering from medical conditions. A Fort Huachuca spokeswoman said Muse arrived at the unit Oct. 6.

The soldier’s father, Douglas Muse, told the Tulsa World his son began preparing last fall for a December deployment to Iraq.

“He was getting headaches and blacking out from time to time,” the father stated in an e-mail to the newspaper.

On Nov. 6, his son went to the base hospital because his head and ears had swollen. Doctors managed to reduce his swelling, and he was discharged the next day.
