Damon Baird

BOARDMAN — Damon Baird, 68 of Leetonia, passed away Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021 at St Elizabeth Hospital in Boardman.

Damon was born May 5, 1953 in Youngstown, a son of David and Dorothy (Williams) Baird. He attended Kent State-Salem and was the owner/operator of Damon Baird Excavating. His business was well known in the area by farmers for his irrigation and trenching equipment and services, as well as homeowners and contractors for general excavating. He was hardworking and was very proud of his projects with the Crestview School District. Over the years, he liked his drag racing, tinkering on stuff, but he didn’t go fishing nearly as much as he wanted to. Damon followed the Cleveland Browns, The Ohio State Buckeyes and of course, The Crestview Rebels.

He is survived by two brothers, Dennis Baird of Denver, Colorado, and Darrell and his wife Emanuela of Port Richey, Florida; nephews Ryan and Ben; nieces Molly, Emilie and Eva; former wife Kathy and her children Chad and Connie; and many good friends, including Mark Harrold and Kurt Seachrist.

Damon was preceded in death by his parents.
