US Private Contractor Matthew Lemmon

45-year-old American citizen Matthew Lemmon, from Memphis, was killed in Kabul on 29th October 2011 when a suicide bomber drove a car packed with explosives into a NATO armored bus which Mr. Lemmon was travelling in.

Matthew Lemmon, a heating and air-conditioning engineer, had taken the job in Afghanistan as a way to increase earnings and help his family. He had taken a three-week break from the job in early October and returned to Afghanistan on 24th October.

He leaves his wife Kim, their two children, Zachary (15) and Lily (3) and other relatives and friends.

  1. I am so sorry for Kim and her childrens loss. My husband worked with Matthew in afghanistan and said they became very close and that he was a very kind man. I pray that his family find comfort and peace during such a devastating time in their life. However, I pray contantly for my husband's protection.
