Obituary of Alan John Taylor Damon
Alan John Taylor Damon, age 65, passed away surrounded by love on April 12, 2022, at the Kings Way Care Centre, Quispamsis, NB. He was born April 28, 1956 to the late Hazen and Doreen (Taylor) Damon of Hampton, NB.
Alan spent his formative years in Saint John and graduated from Simonds High School. He then joined the Royal Canadian Navy for four years, stationed in Victoria, BC. In 1980, he returned to Hampton, NB and worked for the family owned Hampton Save Easy. Eventually, Alan took over the business with his siblings, Coleen and Tony until their retirement in 2009.
He valued the simple things in life, enjoying time with family and friends, hockey (a die-hard Toronto Maple Leaf’s fan), playing cards, fishing, hunting, and being at the cottage. He loved to be near the water. Alan was very community orientated, serving on the Community Business Development Volunteer Board for Charlotte Kings County, delivering groceries to the elderly and local schools, supporting community events, and giving back to local businesses in the area.
Alan’s pride and joy were his three children. He was blessed with being involved in their lives until his dementia deprived him of that.
Alan is survived by his wife, Alice (Pearson); children: Angela (Kyle) Ryan of Nauwigewauk, NB, Neil (Deanna) Damon of Bloomfield, NB, and Grae Damon of Halifax, NS; grandchildren: Nolan and Caelem Ryan, Grayson, Lachlan, Autumn and Ivy Damon; siblings: Ann (Gerry) Burke of Calgary, AB, Coleen (Brian) of Hampton, NB, and Tony (Heidi) of Bloomfield, NB; in-laws: Ann (Richard) O’Leary of Kingston, NB, Susan (Bob) Constantine of Quispamsis, NB, Bob (Sally) Pearson of Springfield, NB; several nieces, nephews and cousins; uncles: Ken and Doug Damon both of Saint John, NB and Ken (Pam) Taylor of Cheshunt Herts, England. Alan is predeceased by infant twins, Trevor and Troy; his parents; and in-laws, Douglas and Gladys (Bell) Pearson of Springfield, NB.
