Damian Deshon Daniel

Heaven received another angel on Sunday, June 2, 2019, when Damian Deshon Daniel entered the presence of the Lord at 11:36 p.m. at Community Hospital South in Indianapolis.  He was 32 years of age.

Damian was born in Belleville, IL, on September 14, 1986, to Dannie H. and Carrie J. (Murray) Daniel.  In 2005, he graduated from Marion High School and continued his education at Indiana Wesleyan University, where he took classes in music theory.  He had previously worked at Marion’s General Motors plant.  On June 30, 2018, he married his beloved wife, Nastassja D. Acuff, and she survives.

Damian was a member of St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church since he was eight years old, where he sang, played the drums, and played piano.  He was very involved at his church, leading the worship team and providing the music for several weddings and funerals over the years.  He spread joy through his love of music and often played piano for the seniors at nursing homes, as well as at several other churches. 

Damian also liked to cook, especially for his wife.  He will be remembered as a loving, caring, attentive, giving, and dedicated man who will be missed by all who were blessed to have met and known him.  He had a passion for music and praising his Lord.

He is survived by his wife, Nastassja, Indianapolis; children, Caiden Daniel, Naomi Bell, Brandon West, Brooklyn West, and Bryce West; parents, Dannie (Carrie) Daniel; sisters, Danielle (Terrance) Carroll, Catherine Daniel, and Monika Daniel; 24 aunts and uncles; his church family and work family; and a countless number of friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Everett (Justina) Daniel and Herman (Louise) Murray; great-grandmother, LueDella Little; and his aunt, Brenda Murray.

The family will receive visitors from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, 1204 W. 14th St., Marion, IN.

Immediately following the time of visitation, a funeral service to celebrate Damian’s life will begin at 1 p.m. with Rev. C.L. Adams officiating.  Burial will take place at Grant Memorial Park.

Arrangements are entrusted to Needham-Storey-Wampner Funeral Service, North Chapel, 1341 N. Baldwin Ave., Marion, IN.
