DAVID W. MARLBOROUGH  September 28, 1948 - June 8, 1967 David W. Marlborough, September 28, 1948 - June 8, 1967

Our late son, David W. Marlborough, was born in Waterville, Maine on September 28, 1948. He was the middle son of a family of three sons. An older brother, John and a younger brother, Allan.

The family moved to Massachusetts in 1953. David started school at the Park Street School in West Springfield. A home was purchased in 1955 and David continued his education at the "Liberty" Street School, Van Sickle Junior High, and then at the High School of Commerce from whence he graduated in 1966. He was active in sports, was on the wrestling team and was also a Boy Scout and an Explorer Scout.

He joined the navy in 1966 and went in July for his boot camp training at Great Lakes, Illinois. He was sent to Communications Technician school in Pensacola, Florida and was assigned to the USS LIBERTY.

He was taking a USAFI course while in the navy, as he wanted to be a Chemical Engineer.

His untimely death has left a terrible emptiness in our lives.
