Blackman, Damon Michael

Damon Michael Blackman, age 61, died in his home of natural causes on December 29, 2015. Damon was born on June 3, 1954 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he lived until his mid-thirties.

Damon settled in Albuquerque where he completed his massage therapy training in 1993. In recent years, Damon became very involved with the Brain Injury Resource Center. He was certified as a peer mentor for people impacted by Traumatic and Acquired Brain Injury in 2013 and went on to participate in multiple trainings, conferences and initiatives that advocate for the TBI community.

It was during time that Damon created his pirate persona "Thomas Tongelouse", which he used to tell the stories his misfortunes so that others could learn from his experiences. Damon was an artist, a healer and a dear friend to many.

Damon is survived by his mother Joan and brother David. He will be buried in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In lieu of flowers, you can make contributions to the NM Brain Injury Resource Center (NMBIRC).
