As a child Damon enjoyed fishing and hunting, loved outdoor activities, and was a pitcher in little league baseball. He attended Creston Community Schools and graduated midterm of his senior year at age 17.

Damon married Lauri Adams at age 19 and fathered two fantastic kids: son, Casey and daughter, Brooke.  Damon and Lauri later divorced. Damon was a grandfather of a grandson, Bentley and granddaughter, Braelyn when he passed.

Damon began liking carpentry and woodworking while still in high-school and perfected his skills over the years until he was a recognized trim and finish carpenter working on high end homes.

Rest-in-peace Damon. May you reunite with friends and family in the hereafter, and may you continue to enjoy forever hunting and fishing in whatever form you find it to be.
