Daryth E. Fairbank, recently a resident of California City, passed away on February 28, 2006 at the age of 35 following his loving deceased mother Georgia D. Fairbank only two years ago.

Daryth is survived by his very elderly grandfather, Harold S. Fairbank Jr., father, Harold S. Fairbank III, brother Hal S. Fairbank IV, sisters, Patty A. Ahrens and Smytha L. Fairbank, his loving fiancé, Cathy D. Denson, and many loving relatives and friends.

Daryth's heart of gold and iron determination courageously challenged life every day. He consistently provided kindness, gratitude and understanding in his relationships. An extraordinary artist and writer, Daryth expressed life experiences through insightful poetry and verse as well as intricate drawing, colorful painting and detailed renderings. We all still deeply love and revere Daryth. He is a most tragic loss to everyone now.

Comprehension of Understanding
A poem written by Daryth Erol Fairbank in 2004

All these words... that fly by so fast in the night, of our hearts thoughts and dreams
All these feelings that seem to want to explode, and yet we hold them deep... and never once let go...
Why ... why is it so hard... and when you feel faith and love... why does it cut the heart of all we seem to know

When you take the time... to look around... and see all the beauty... to taste that every blessed breathe...
When you can look back at all of life's paths... and still find a hope and faith that lives within,
It's a belief in something more, its that thing that can move you through and past your time of need or fear

When you look to the morning sky so purple with the mist of fog and rain, do you cry with joy...? Or only feel the pain...?
When you stand on that stone... of that crossroad of time... coming to that place... that the tears and the years make so blind...
What am I to do...? But give thanks and praise...

Because somehow and someway...
I have yet even made it to this day... yes words come so fast... But I grasp and struggle to take hold of the feelings the feelings and words that will let me go... and live... beyond what it is...

I think I know.

Date of Interment 3/11/2006
