“During his life, he struggled to get those into the proper order,” said Jim DeFelice, 56, of Warwick, N.Y., one of the co-authors of Kyle’s best-selling book, American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History, which details Kyle’s kills of 150-plus insurgents from 1999 to 2009.

“It was always God first, but he struggled sometimes with how to balance his responsibility to his country with his responsibility to his family,” DeFelice said.

Kyle, 38, and Chad Littlefield, 35, were shot and killed at the Rough Creek Lodge, west of Glen Rose, Texas, about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Police said Routh fired on Kyle and Littlefield around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, then fled in a Ford pickup. At around 8 p.m., Routh arrived at his home in Lancaster, about 17 miles southeast of Dallas. Police arrested him after a brief pursuit.
