Damon Gammon Obituary

Damon Allen Gammon passed away on Wednesday, November 29th, 2023. He was born on June 16th, 1975, in St. Louis, MO to Donna Lynn Gammon (Stinson) and Roger Stinson. He was raised by his grandparents, Vivian and Donald Gammon. He attended Lutheran North High School, in St. Louis, MO and eventually went on to attend Alabama A & M University in Huntsville, AL (sports medicine).

He worked over 20 years in the healthcare profession (various positions); most recently for Conifer Health Solutions. His ultimate dream was to become a sports agent under his business name “Defining Gr8ness”. He enjoyed traveling, cooking, and spending time with his family and friends. He also was a huge sports fan, especially basketball.

He married Sonja Caston (Gammon) on August 8, 2008, in Lilburn, GA. He took on the role of Dad to Jasmine, Raeven and Gia and eventually became a “Pop-Pop” to Xavier and India. He leaves behind an abundance of memories for us all. Damon also leaves behind his dad, Roger, stepmother, Gail, his grandfather, Donald, siblings; Jerome, Shawnda, Roger Jr., Star Lynn and Brandon. He also has several nieces, nephews and close friends who will all miss him greatly. He was preceded in death by his mother, Donna Lynn, his grandmother, Vivian, and his mother-in law, Bernice and several other loved ones over the years

We are all grateful to have been able to share our love and lives with Damon and the time that we had with him. With his outgoing personality, he had the ability to talk to anyone, people were drawn to him; he was very charismatic, and he had a unique sense of style. He has had a huge impact on all of us. The “good-byes” are the hardest part of life.
