In Memory

Bobby Damon

Bobby Joe Damon passed away unexpectedly at the early age of 43 due to cardiovascular disease.

Bobby was born in Madison to Linda (Eggers) and the late William Damon. Bobby had very fond memories growing up and graduated in 1989 from Waunakee. Bobby married Rachel on April 9, 2005. They have four beautiful children. Bobby received his associate degree as a civil engineering technician and he currently worked for the City of Sun Prairie.

Bobby’s love for sports was astonishing. ESPN was made for him. He knew statistics, players, coaches and he knew the game. He loved the Badgers, Packers and Brewers. Decades ago, the Boston Red Sox became Bobby’s number one team and he made the journey to Fenway Park twice.

One of Bobby’s goals in life was to be a good coach for both his own children and other children. He coached T-ball, machine pitch, league and travel ball. He was so proud of each and every child that he coached. He was known to be an aggressive coach, but his explanation was that it was his responsibility to stand up for his players … and of course his competitive nature. One baseball mom would explain to people that it was the passion that drove Bobby Damon to be the coach he was. We developed an extended family within baseball, softball and hockey. Coaching for Bobby did not stop at baseball, as his goal was to inspire youth to become better people and develop passion for life. He was an instrumental member of the Beaver Dam Youth Baseball and Softball board.

Bobby will truly be missed by so many people, and know that when you see Boston, Addysen, Emersen and Marison running around the baseball diamonds, that he is with us and that his spirt will live on through them. Each of these children carries his passion for life, his accomplishments, and his love. These blessed children will bring everyone much comfort and continuous tender memories that remind us that Bobby Damon is their father. Our memories of him will spill over onto them and our job will be to remind these young children of their father.

He will be missed by his best friend and wife, Rachel Damon, Beaver Dam; his adored children: Boston, Addysen, Emersen, and Marison, all at home; his mother, Linda Damon, Waunakee; his brothers and sister: Brian Damon (Juanita Anderson), Waunakee, Brad (Leslie) Damon, Waunakee, and Brenda (Felix) Stephens, Madison; parents-in-law, Pauline and Gary Schmidt, Beaver Dam; brothers-in-law and sister-in-law: Noah and Jenni Schmidt, Pardeeville, and Andy Schmidt (Angela Krueger), Beaver Dam; grandmother-in-law, Rosemary Schmidt, Beaver Dam; nieces and nephews: Zac and Broc Damon, Riley and Lauryn Damon, Adrianna, Savaunnah and Amari Stephens, Nate and Riley Schmidt, Kaci, Tia and Keelan Krueger; numerous aunts and uncles; several cousins; and many friends. Bobby was preceded in death by his grandparents and his father, William, in 1994.
