Damon E. Eberlin joined his daughters, Patricia (Patty) Eberlin-Kunkle and April Rose-Lois Eberlin, in heaven on Thursday, May 5th, 2022.
Damon was born on Feb. 21, 1963, to Alden and Joyce (Taylor) Eberlin in Neptune, NJ. He was the first born to the family in which he was blessed to have five loving younger brothers and sisters.
Damon was a proud member of the US Army of the United States and served from 1982 to 1988 in Alpha Battery 112th Field Artillery Battalion based out of Tuckerton, NJ.
He enjoyed owning his own business, D&M Bait Shop in which much of his time was spent picking night-crawlers on his favorite golf courses, Tommaso’s and Towanda Country Club for 30 years. Damon had an undeniable
passion for gardening in which he planted and grew many varieties of flowers for all to enjoy. He loved the fall and continued his gardening with German pumpkins galore for all the grandchildren to get their own every year.
