Trevor Lorain Fajardo lost his battle with mental health and tragically decided to end his life on 08 April 2021 in Corpus Christi, Texas, he was 25 years old. Being Active Duty he was a Hospital Corpsman Second Class in the United States Navy stationed at Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Command Corpus Christi located on Naval Air Station Corpus Christi from September 2019-April 2021.
Trevor was born on 30 August 1995 in Omaha, Nebraska. Mainly raised by his grandparents Dave and Bonnie Looman in Nebraska he was raised in a home full of love and support. His favorite movie growing up was Mulan, he was often found running around the house quoting lines and singing at the top of his lungs for hours on end his favorite thing to do was leap from high places and screaming “let’s go kick some honey buns!” His first time at the beach he ran around pretending to be a football star when a crab latched onto his finger and he ran away screaming, he still loved to play with animals though. After he would get out of the bath he would run around and proclaim that he was “pretty clean!” His stepsister once caught him watching hellraiser at two a.m. and he told her he was fine and not at all frightened, until he leaped into her bed shivering. Her favorite memory of Trevor was how he would put on a sunflower sundress and twirl around pretending to be her. He was a goofy and fun-loving kid who loved lists and set-in stone schedules that did not, under any circumstances change. Trevor found his passion for Boy Scouts at a young age and managed to rank up to the highest honor a boy scout is given. On 10 November 2010 Trevor received his title of Eagle Scout, the first of many promotions he would receive in his lifetime. Moving on to his years in High School Trevor remained involved in school, joining both the varsity swim team, track team, as well as the nationally ranked show choir with Westside High School in Omaha Nebraska. He performed in many places all over the country and loved every second of it, and even ranked second place at nationals on 18 March 2013. He graduated high school on 23 May 2013. He enlisted and left for bootcamp in the United States Navy in Great Lakes, Illinois as a Hospital Corpsman on 04 September 2013, being the musically talented individual that he was, he was chosen to be a part of one of the triple threat performing divisions 951. Excelling through bootcamp he graduated on 01 November 2013 and was off to San Antonio for Hospital Corpsmen “A” school where he continued to excel in his newfound love for Naval Medicine. Trevor Married his high school sweetheart Rachel Poyzer on 31 January 2014 before graduating Corps School. He graduated on 27 March 2014, now truly being able to call himself a Hospital Corpsman in the United States Navy. He went to Camp Lejeune for Field Medicine Training Battalion graduating on 25 July 2014 becoming a certified Field Med Technician to work alongside Marines. Hand in hand the two of them were off to his first duty station, Fort Belvoir, Virginia. When he arrived, he was still bright eyed and bushy tailed with this drive to always better himself and soak up every bit of knowledge he possibly could. He was placed in the hospital’s emergency room where he shined and the stories he had from his E.R. days would baffle everyone he told. He found out shortly after he arrived that Rachel was pregnant, and he was going to be a father for the first time. His first son Ezra Lorain Fajardo was born on 01 December 2015, and the light and joy this little boy brought to his life was indescribable. Enjoying his time remaining at his first command and becoming a Father Trevor had great memories to look back on. His next duty station was in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, were he found his drive for field medicine. He was frocked to Hospital Corpsman Third Class on 20 December 2016 truly earning the honor of becoming a Petty Officer in the United States Navy. Being placed with 2nd Marine Division 3rd Battalion 6th Marines he was placed on a Marine Expeditionary Unit deploying to Israel, Spain, and Greece as well as all over the Mediterranean Sea. He loved and cared for his Marines with everything he could and still maintained relationships with some, they had truly become lifelong friends and apart of his sea family forever. Returning from deployment 24 September 2017 his whole world changed a few months later finding out he was yet again going to be a father to another beautiful baby boy. Asher James Fajardo was born on 26 June 2018 at Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune and became the second light in Trevor’s life. His kids were a huge part of the wonderful man that he was, gentle, kind and caring to all. Before ending his time in Camp Lejeune, he was Meritoriously Promoted to Hospital Corpsman Second Class 02 September 2019 for all his hard work and effort at the command. Arriving to his final command Navy Medicine and Training Command Corpus Christi on 10 September 2019. Becoming a true mentor to all, he was looked up to by so many at NMRTC-CC, he absolutely got his second class footing very quickly establishing his dominance his first day on the job, as all his junior corpsman can attest to, he was quite the motivator. In July of 2020 Trevor and Rachel decide to go their separate ways still maintaining a wonderful co-parenting relationship. After the divorce Trevor started dating another Corpsman, Mikayla, and on 06 January 2021 Trevor re-married Mikayla and they both thought that was the start of their happily ever after. Their love for each other and his two boys was astronomical, it was a complete whirlwind of a relationship and they both made one another incredibly happy, unfortunately they will be unable to spend their lives together has they both had once planned out.
When Trevor loved he loved hard and with everything he had. He was a friend to so many finding a home in every location he went to. He had this infectious smile always plastered across his face along with a laugh that could fill an entire stadium with joy. He was, as many could say, one of the most motivated husbands, fathers, sons, grandsons, friends, and sailors you would ever meet. Squared away was practically his middle name and his meticulous attention to detail is what made him such an incredible person and Sailor. We will all miss that beautiful smile as he is laid to rest. All he ever wanted was to make those he cared about happy and to feel loved. Trevor you did amazing and we are all going to miss you greatly.
