  22. I have only known Damian for a very short time, through my work with him and Ken Steel. A more genuine, friendly and good natured man I have never met.
    He spoke with that wonderful glint in his eyes of his family, their achievements and the future that he was so much looking forward to with each and every one.
    We are all the better for having known him, learned from him and his time on this earth will continue in the hearts and minds of his many friends, colleagues and most especially his family.
    My heartfelt condolences to Sharon, Jordan, Caleb and Tanner.
