John Damon Yasevich passed away on Sunday, September 15, 2019. He was 50 years old. Damon was born on March 18, 1969 in Midwest City, Oklahoma and grew up in Conway, Arkansas. After graduation from High School, he moved New York City where he made his home. He attended Hunter College. He worked in many areas of computer/internet technology. Also, Damon was bilingual in French and English and loved linguistics, was a gourmet cook and fabulous pastry chef, and was a great supporter of LGBTQ+ rights, environmental causes, and animal rights issues. Damon had a passion for travel and particularly treasured his trips to Spain, Egypt, and Kenya with his aunt Judith. He made many annual trips to Maine with dear friends. He was known for his great sense of humor at work and among his friends. He is survived by his mother, Anita Llewelyn Yasevich, and sister, Jennifer Ellen Tucker, both of Shongaloo, Louisiana, his maternal aunt, Judith S Anthony, of San Antonio, Texas, and his cat Trixie. Damon wished to be cremated.

We are having a Celebration and Memorial for Damon on March 21st at Elmo Lounge in NYC. This is 3 days after what would have been his 51st birthday! Since he was sick around his 50th, I like to think of this as a delayed 50th birthday celebration.

We're just starting to put this together - more information as we get closer but please pass the word around to folks or groups that you know. We've placed an event invite on the Facebook (Damon would have said, the Facespace), which you can access via but please share around as there may be many who are on the FB or don't check it.

Please leave pictures, messages, memories, and sign the guestbook here on the Redden website. Condolences may also be sent to his mother and sister’s address at 559 Elton Wise Road, Shongaloo LA 71072.

Donations to help family and friends defray the costs of the cremation, legal issues if any, and a future memorial can be made via GoFundMe; (copy & paste link), for Damon. Any remaining monies in the fund will be donated to the Cornell Feline Health Center in Damon’s name.

"Good tea... Nice house."

I've FAR more to say, but thought I'd post something simple for those of us that get the reference. I tried to post something longer... but: Computer said: NO! If all else fails... I'll share it via semaphore, EBCDIC, and sabre-tooth pigeon.

Living together as long we did (12 years...??), I came to rely on a flavor of instant-humor and skipping through topics of conversation impossible to replicate with anyone else I knew. He made connections SO quickly and intuitively it was as if he could read the "vast confusing array" that occupies my mind. We learned and shared an endless flood of random information, hilarious moments, with conceptual leaps of ridiculousness "alone together" and with many wonderfully fun and entertaining friends. People that "got the joke" were a gift. Thank you all for gifting both Damon and I through many hilarious and sometimes oddly difficult moments - even if it came from depths of Damon's childhood memories.

I know he treasured ALL of you - and I thought you should know that. Best and More... in time. - Anthony.

It is difficult to put into words all that Damon meant to me. Friend seems inadequate to encapsulate the kind, generous, loving human he was. To my sci-fi buddy 🖖🏿
