  • Can’t imagine our personal world without Bill Damron in it. In it, he will always be- but it won’t be the same. We pray for you Cathy, and Bill’s entire family, and ourselves to find strength and peace in God’s word. There are so many memories to cherish, especially for Scott. He and Bill could find exceptional ways to get in the middle of trouble as kids, but always have fun. Bill’s peaceful character, and big heart always shone like a beam of light. He helped to light the world in places of darkness for others. May he rest joyfully in Jesus’ arms, and be waiting there until we meet again. Love you Bill.

  • Dear Bill,

    What an incredibly loving and compassionate presence you have been in the lives of so many and, especially, ours. Oh, my, how we will miss your kind and gentle spirit. Life won’t be the same without you. We thank you, Bill, for the incredible memories . . . cherished memories . . . memories that will stay in our hearts forever. With all our love,
    Glenn and Sharon.

  • We are so very sorry. Our hearts are broken for everyone that Bill has touched and for all that will never know his love and kindness. When we think of our Alum Creek family, Bill always is at the forefront of those thoughts. The kindness he showed us when we were new to Alum Creek, the help us gave us to prepare to sell our house and move to New Mexico, and that if there was a baby around he would be have them in his arms. We will hold all memories close in our hearts. Our prayers and love to all the Damron family, and to everyone that will morn the passing of such a wonderful man.

    Love, Rick & Cindi Miller

    Matthew 5:4: Blessed are those who morn, for they will be comforted.

  • Dear Cathy, I became a friend to Bill back in the days of Fort Hill. Even then, at the age of just 13 and 14, he was such a generous and caring guy. Everyone just loved him. There was never anything he would not chip in and do. I know of the wonderful work he did with you at Willowbrook to help. That was just the way he was. I was a caregiver for a lady where his dad would visit and Bill always made sure his dad got to the doctor. And even though the years separated us I was forever hearing good things you both were doing for others.
    He will always be loved.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  • Our hearts are heavy and filled with sorrow over the sudden loss of Bill. He was a great neighbor and a kind and generous man. Bill was always willing to jump in and help or offer advice on how to do something. He will truly be missed. Our prayers go out to the Damron family.

  • My nephew Billy was always a sweet good person. Our Son Buddy was mesmerized just to watch Billy show him something he didn’t know how to make! I helped Norma since she had Diana, Cathy, and Billy! We were pretty busy raising little ones and amazed how soon they all left to find there own path. I would like to feel his hug once more, but this I am sure of: Billy is there celebrating with our grandparents, parents, and friends and family. I love you Billy and will sing with you in glory! Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Lowell

  • I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Bill’s passing, I have known Bill for
    probably 50 years and he was one of the kindness , Christian man I have
    ever known. He is missed.
    I extend my most gracious condolences to all the family. May God be with
    you all.

  • Among the most selfless, gentle, and caring men I have known. One of the first to hold our children, one of the first to be there in a time of need, one of the last to burden anyone else. An artist, a friend, a brother, a free spirit, a willing listener. He embodied “slow to speak, quick to listen.” Bill was a dreamer, a helper, a contemplative, and a sage. His loss is a loss for his family, the Church, and the world. May God piece back the shards of your shattered hearts with the memories of such an admirable, peaceful, godly man. God rest his soul and may you be comforted with the comfort of His Spirit.

  • May God hold you all close and comfort you. We grieve with you and your entire family.
    With love and prayers now and in the days to come.

  • We are so very sorry for your loss! Bill was such a wonderful man. We will always remember his laughter and sense of humor. His love for his family was always apparent to us. He will be deeply missed. We continue to pray for you and the boys! May God grant you peace and comfort in the coming days! We love you all. Jack and Jane.

  • Cathy, so sorry for your loss of Bill.

    This verse from Micah 6:8, reminds me of him…..

    “He has shown you, O man, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
    To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.”

  • I am just crushed and heartbroken. Speechless.
    So I know even more how it must be for you.
    My memories are vivid, happy and joyful.
    So I know even more how it must be for you.
    I know he loved me and cared about me.
    So I know even more how it must be for you.
    Our prayers are for peace and comfort from the One who can truly grant peace and comfort.

    Heaven is wonderful! II Corinthians 5:1-5

    For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. 2 We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. 3 For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. 4 While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. 5 God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.

  • Our deepest condolences to Bill’s family. Such a loss. We will always remember Bill’s smiling face. Greg, Leslie, Crystal & Jennifer
