Damon Robinson

We have some very sad news to share. Orange native Damon Robinson, an Amity Grad, talented athlete and much loved friend and classmate has died.

Back in 2014, the Amity Boys Lacrosse Team was smoking hot, with great names like Choiniere, Uscilla, Burns, Sember, Coassin, King, Cala, Sullivan, Pignataro, DiMauro and Robinson.

Many of these fine athletes are now playing Lacrosse in colleges and universities across the USA.

Sadly, on October 6, 2016 we were informed that Damon (#17), who also wrestled at Amity, was suffering severe brain damage in a Neurological Intensive Care Unit after being assaulted by a group of people over the weekend. (He lived in Orlando, Fla.)

Damon had been in and out of consciousness and every day was a struggle as he fought through this challenge.

After five days in the NICU Damon was moved to the Neurological Medicine floor and friends were optimistic for his recovery.

Almost immediately he was relocated to a different hospital with a better neurological unit where he would receive better care for his needs.

It’s been nearly five months since the attack and this young man’s family and friends are mourning his death (March 2, 2017)

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help his family with “Damon Robinson’s Memorial Expenses.

Orange Live will update you on any funeral or memorial services that are planned for Damon.

We offer our condolences to his family and friends at this very difficult time.
