Damon C. Franklin

January 22, 1989 - December 02, 2020

We created a GatheringUs memorial to celebrate the life of Damon C. Franklin. Collecting your stories and memories here will offer us all great comfort. As we plan virtual and in-person gatherings, we will share details on this page. Thank you for contributing to this lasting memorial.

Damon was unexpectedly taken from us on December 2, 2020 in Southfield, MI.  Today we grieve for the loss of our son, brother, uncle, friend, family member, and coworker, but tomorrow we move forward, at our own pace, and remember the impact that Damon had on all of our lives.  Damon never fully knew how much of an effect he had on all of us, but in his memory, let us come together, and leave a story, or picture to honor his legacy.   ...  see more
