Damon Rhoades Fillion
July 12, 1998 – January 14, 2021
It is with the most immense heartache that we announce the passing of our son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend. After a year-long fight against an illness that led to leukemia, Damon Rhoades Fillion passed away at Drayton Valley Hospital and Care Centre on the morning of Thursday, January 14, 2021 at the age of 22 years.
He attended Evergreen, HW Pickup and Frank Maddock schools and along the way, made many, many great friends. He was always there for them, and they were there for him. In addition to the time he spent with friends, he absolutely loved his family, BMXing, gaming, golfing and was quite talented with the practical jokes.
Damon will forever be missed and lovingly remembered by his parents, Arlin and Cathy Fillion; sister, Tanis Fillion; aunts and uncles, Brenda, Linda, Leslie (Reg) Watson, Chris (Troy) Watson, Keith Rowe, Chrissey Rowe, Mickey McIntosh and Dani (Jason) Wright; grandparents, John and Shirley Fillion, and Velma Rowe; lots and lots of cousins, his fur buddies, Zoe, Joey, Shakira and Spooky; his spider Slash and his most valuable and precious friends, Bradley, Mac, Jordan, Hunter, Dalice and Aaron.
Damon is predeceased by his papa, Harold Rowe, as well as by Lamie and Bumps McIntosh.
