I’ve had the privilege of serving Damon in business at Midwest Uph. Supply and as a friend from the mid 70’s thru the 2000’s. It was a pleasure to talk about Christ together and other experiences in life. I just saw the news this afternoon. My thoughts and prayers to all the family.

I have many precious memories of growing up together with Damon at Trinity Church. We were almost like brothers, always in the same Sunday school class, going to church camps, playing on the church ball team, riding on “ The Blue Angel” bus going to ball games and camps. I’ll never forget the choir trip to Six Flags. I’m sure the people who kept us in their house will ever forget us either. We surely made some messes!! Damon had a big heart full of love for everyone! He’ll be standing on “The Far Side Banks of Jordan “ along with all the other Saints from Trinity welcoming the rest of us when we arrive.

I met Damon through his sister, Glenda, whom I have known for 45 years. He had a wicked sense of humor. He was, by far, the best upholsterer I have ever known. An all around great man, I and the rest of his friends and family will miss him very much. May you have eternal rest, my friend!

Me and my wife met Damon about 30 years ago. We became instant friends. His sense of humor was unmatched by anyone. No matter the circumstances , Damon ALWAYS made us laugh.
Damon's upholstering skills were first class. A little slow, but still first class.
He touched so many young lives while helping with the youth groups at church.
I had the pleasure of teaching a Sunday school class with Damon for those who had just graduated high school. The lessons were based on the "Andy Griffith/ Mayberry" show. We hoped that those who attended the class learned to always "do the right thing" and to never lose your sense of humor when life gets rough.
Damon will be truly missed on earth but those in heaven will now get a front row seat to Damon's comedy skills.
Damon, if "Frank Tooney" gets there before me, tell him I said hello!!

Glenda, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember all the fun times we had at your home especially baking cookies. Damon was good to all your friends even when we were silly and loud. Praying for God' peace and comfort for you and your family.

I can't tell you how devastated I was to hear about Damon's passing. He and I have been friends, and colleagues, for close to 20 years. He was, by far, the most talented custom upholsterer I have ever worked with. He and I were able to create many beautiful things over the last few decades for our clients. Not only will I miss having him to collaborate with, I will miss his friendship. He became one of our family members, sharing many Christmas Eve dinners with us. I'll never make "Chex Mix" again without thinking of him! I always told him, "Damon when you retire, I may have to retire also". Somehow, I will try to carry on, but know there will never be anyone else like him. We love you Damon. Now you can rest.

I knew Damon only briefly as a business associate and I as one of his customers. He was an expert at his work and perfected his projects. Such a sweet man. So sorry I did not know him longer. I’m sure his family and friends will miss him terribly and I will not forget his gentle spirit.

I've known Damon for many years and I can say that he was one of the best people I've ever known. He was kindhearted, loved his family, loved giving of himself to his church family, and was always a joy to spend time with. He had many talents and gifts, and the world will be a little less bright without him. My prayers go out to his family at this time. Rest In Peace, Damon.
