It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Roderic Cecil Damon of Chesapeake Beach, Maryland on December 31, 2022 at the age of 83.
Roderic was born January 10, 1939 to the late Cecil Thomas Damon and Maxine Barbour Damon of Deer Isle, Maine. After high school, he served honorably in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Tills and the USS Accokeek. In 1971, he married Brenda-Lee Wright of Barre, Vermont and moved to Maryland where they built a life together. Roderic was dedicated and hard-working, providing for his family as a tractor trailer driver for nearly thirty years. He enjoyed being in nature, which he shared with his wife and daughters, camping and fishing at Breezy Point, in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland, and regularly vacationing in Maine and Vermont. He also enjoyed working on small engines and was a highly skilled woodworker and woodturner. He will be fondly remembered for his kindness, honesty, generosity and humor, values he instilled in his children.
He was predeceased by his parents and his brothers Byron Damon and Sherwood Damon, all of Deer Isle, Maine.
He is survived by his best friend and loving wife of 51 years, Brenda-Lee Wright Damon of Chesapeake Beach, Maryland; three daughters, Bobbi-Jo and husband John Prue of Boyds, MD, Dale-Marie and husband Earl Pack of Womelsdorf, PA, and Laurie-Ann and husband Brady Wilks of Boyds, MD; five grandchildren; one great-grandchild; and his sister, Marilyn Davis of Stonington, Maine.
