Britain's military says the soldier brutally murdered in a suspected terrorist attack was a popular drummer and machine gunner, a father, and a passionate fan of Manchester United.
The Ministry of Defense identified him Thursday as 25-year-old Lee Rigby, of 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.
It says he joined the army in 2006, and was posted in Cyprus, Afghanistan and Germany before becoming a recruiter, assisting with duties in the Tower of London.
Capt. Alan Williamson, the adjutant of the 2nd Fusiliers, calls Rigby "a cheeky and humorous man, always there with a joke to brighten the mood."
He says the loss of Rigby "will be felt across the battalion, but this is nothing compared to how his family must be feeling." Rigby had a 2-year-old son, Jack.
