David Fairbrother

British Royal Marine David Fairbrother, age 24, of Beardwood Brow, died on September 19, 2011, in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

David was shot dead after his ambushed patrol came under close range fire.

He was with Kilo Company of the 42 Commando Royal Marines.

David joined the Royal Marines in November 2009 and was a qualified Team Medic.

Emil Kapaun, on your way to
Sainthood, pray for David
Family members describe him as a daredevil and a perfect son and brother, and as unselfish and brave. 

Military officials describe him as a first class Marine, intelligent, and a young man of rare quality, who had a bright future ahead of him.

David is survived by many loving friends and family members including his mother, Julie; his sisters, Ruth and Emily; and his girlfriend, Melissa. 

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that David Fairbrother is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
