Condolence & Memory Journal

I worked with Kent Damon briefly for Bethlehem Steel on the 42nd Floor of The Prudential Building's Boston Office. My father, James E. Clabby worked for Edgecomb Steel's Milford, Connecticut Branch. The Damon Family owned Edgecomb's Nashua, New Hampshire Facility. Sadly there is another irony-my father also died of complications of Multiple Myeloma. My condolences to the entire Damon Family.

When I worked for Bethlehem Steel in the 1960s Kent Damon was stationed in our office in the Prudential Center. The Damon Family of New Hampshire were owners of Edgecomb Steel, later Edgecomb Metals. My father, James E. Clabby was employed as Superintendent of The Edgecomb Plant in Milford Ct. Kent had only a brief career with Bethlehem as he was attracted to other career interests. I believe he joined a major investment firm as a broker.

I have enjoyed many of Matt Damon's collection of films and hope that he continues on with his highly talented and successful career.

Kent Damon had to have been an awesome person. You just can't raise a son like Matt Damon and not have been! A real man who instilled in his son Matt the true values of life! It must be the most painful loss anyone could know.

Please know Matt that you are never far from my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sad to read about this news. I didn't ever see anything about Matt Damon's father, but then again I don't watch a lot of tv or movies these days. but I'm betting he is like his son Matt, who we know a little bit about from his movies and interviews on tv. Matt seems like a wonderful good man, and has done good humanitarian works for the better of people that were in media news over the years. I'm betting his Dad was too and was a good man. My condolences and best wishes. Remember all the wonderful happy times to get you through this Matt and Bless you and your family and may your Dad rest in peace, joy and love in heaven with God forever.

It's never easy experiencing the death of a love one. The Bible provides us with an abundance of comfort at a time like this. In the book of Isaiah, chapter 41 verse 10 and 11, it reads, "do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will really help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness". Can you that? God caring about you so much that he is holding you.
