It is with heavy heart to announce the passing of Raymond Damaso, 74, of Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Ray passed away on October 16, 2023. Ray was born on January 23, 1949, in Warren, RI. Raymond is survived by his loving wife, Karen Damaso (Hubbard); and children, Raymond Damaso Jr., Ryan Damaso, AJ Dillon, and Cara Dillon; and grandkids Cameron, Taylor, Mia, Elliana, Liza, Russell, Kevin, Briella, and Raelyn; and brother Antone Damaso.
The world has lost an amazing, talented, and loving man who leaves behind a memorable smile and lots of laughter that will never be replaced.
Ray grew up in Warren, RI, where he graduated high school and went to work for the local newspaper and belonged to the Pressmans Union. His family was very proud as this was a well-paying job. His dreams didn’t end there, though. He went on to attend college while working and raising a family. He graduated from Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI, with a degree in Business Management. He took a lower-paying job to gain experience and launched a career that eventually led to a job in the Aerospace Industry with Lockheed Martin in Colorado.
In 2000, Ray met Karen, and they married in 2006. They enjoyed spending time with their family, dining out, and traveling. After Ray retired in 2006, they were transferred to Florida for Karen’s work. Ray enjoyed his retirement years there playing golf with his new friends. With the birth of another grandchild, Ray and Karen decided to move back to their beloved Colorado in 2015.
Of the many hats Ray wore besides the Red Sox or New England Patriots ones, of course, being a conversationalist probably fit him best. He had a remarkable talent for striking up conversations with anyone he encountered. Ray would chat with bartenders, cashiers, and strangers in restaurants. Within five minutes, he could have just about anyone sharing laughs and stories like old pals. It’s a testament to his love of people and the love people had for Ray’s infectious personality. Ray ignited the atmosphere when entering a room; everyone knew he was there. He leaves behind a legacy of friendship, love, and a family who will forever cherish the memories of him, his warm heart, and the enduring mark he made in their lives.
Services will be held on October 27, 2023 at 11AM at Drinkwine Family Mortuary, 999 West Littleton Blvd, Littleton, CO 80120. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to Freedom Service Dogs of America, freedomservicedogs.org, Englewood, CO.
