Dan Harvey Dameron
Dan Harvey Dameron, 71, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past 11 years, formerly of Crofton, MD, passed away Monday, August 29, 2022 in Fort Myers, FL. He was born June 30, 1951 in Washington, DC to Ballard and Grace Dameron, now deceased.
Dan was of the Christian faith and attended Skyline Church in Cape Coral. Dan was a great man of faith. He was the eldest of 4 brothers (Wayne, David and Steve, who preceded him in death). Dan refereed high school football for 25 years and loved working with the referees, coaches and students. He received his Bachelor degree from the University of Maryland in system analysis and received his master’s degree from George Washington University. Dan and I met in 1981 when we sang in a community singing group. I went home that night and told my cousin, that I met the man I was going to marry. We began dating in August 1981, got engaged on February 16, 1982 and were married in Buffalo, NY on August 28, 1982. The ironic thing about getting married in Buffalo is that Buffalo was Dan’s nickname.
We adopted 3 beautiful daughters Dan was an awesome father to all the girls. He was there whenever they needed him. He went to our daughter, Kelli’s dance competitions and would sit and cheer her on. He worked for Pepco, the electric company in Washington, DC for 35 years as a system analysist. He played on their softball team for many years. He crossed paths again at Pepco with his first-grade friend, Dave Dixon. Dave was our best man in our wedding. Dave has been there for the girls and I.
I want Dan to be remembered as a loving husband of 40 years, an incredible father to our 3 girls., a great friend who would do anything for them
He is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Maria Dameron of Cape Coral; children, Danielle Dameron of Cape Coral, Kimberly Dameron of Fort Myers, and Kelli Dameron of Cape Coral; brothers, Wayne Dameron (Sharon) of TX, and David Dameron of MD; grandchildren, Ben Brown, and Zach Brown; as well as best friend of 65 years, Dave Dixon.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at Skyline Church, 717 Skyline Blvd, Cape Coral, FL 33991.
