Damien was born on August 11, 2005, in Spirit Lake, IA. He had completed 8th grade at Sibley-Ocheyedan Middle School. Damien loved music and was in the middle school concert and marching band where he played alto saxophone and bassoon. Damien also enjoyed playing piano. Damien was a part of the cross country, track, wrestling, and baseball teams. As Damien had a special place in his heart for those with special needs he also was a unified partner on the Tidal Waves Special Olympics team.
Damien enjoyed chess and was on a Sibley chess team.
Damien was blessed to be a baptized member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church and completed the requirements to be a confirmed member of our church. Damien enjoyed his friends at church and loved the fellowship times. Damien played bells in the church bell choir. He enjoyed learning how to hold and ring multiple bells in one hand. He was also part of the tech-crew projecting the worship service via PowerPoint.
Most of the family was involved in a major trip to the Orlando, Florida area last fall. Universal and Walt Disney World theme parks were the major destinations. It was favorite time for all involved and a great week for Damien. He enjoyed and looked forward to going to Okoboji in the summer for Camp Minneboji and the scheduled Confirmation retreats.
