In Memorial

Damon Havas

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our amazing Damon Darren Havas (pen name D.D. Yates)

Damon passed at his home in Reno on May 17, 2014 where he resided for the rest of his life. Damon was a published poet as well as a state champion and all-star football player at Reno High School.

Damon graduated from Reno High School and attended the University of Nevada Reno and was a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE). Damon’s true passions were poetry, skiing and physical fitness. He spent most of his life writing and skiing on one of the many Sierra Mountain ski trails and worked out often to build his personal strength.

He will be greatly missed by all who loved him. Damon leaves behind his father and mother Paul and Gordine Havas, his two brothers Adrian and Steffan Havas, his sister Lanya Havas Zambrano, his nieces and nephews Isabella Havas, Maxwell Havas and Sebastian Zambrano and many aunts and uncles.

A special thought from Damon:

oNe Day

The sun may shine
Brighter one-day;
The sun may shine
Brighter.

The chance Comment
Is only a comet,
But there is a
day.

A day of peace is
A tension-thousand-day.
Don’t push God to a
Billion to-one-day-
Brighter Desolation

D.D. Yates
