Walter ‘Damian’ Neighbor

| June 3, 2022

Walter “Damian” Neighbor, 62, of Coshocton passed away Thursday, June 2, 2022, at the Coshocton Regional Medical Center.  He was born in Coshocton, on Feb. 24, 1960.

Damian graduated from Coshocton High School in 1978, and worked in construction most of his life alongside his father, brother, and sister. He was a much-loved son, brother, father, and grandfather. He lived his 62 years of life as the original free spirit. He traveled the U.S. on his Harley with friends, that were as much family as anyone. The open road and the mountains of Arizona is where he could always find peace.

He was the most generous soul there could be. Anything he had was yours for the asking. His final months were spent in the company of his family. Spending time with his mom became his most important past time. Deepest appreciation towards Christy and Craig for their loving care and companionship over the past few months.

Damian is survived by his mother, Linda (Wright) Neighbor of Coshocton; daughter, Samantha Decker of Arizona; grandson, Walter James Neighbor; siblings, Kim (Bryan) Wentzel, Denise (Rex Zourdos) Neighbor, Stacey (Bill Tenczar) Neighbor, Gina (Joe) Cullison, Aimee (Bruce Gault) Neighbor, and Craig (Christy) Neighbor; and several nieces and nephews.

Damian is preceded in death by his father, Walter “Jerry” Neighbor; son, Walter “Walt” Neighbor Jr.; sister, Lori Williard; and stepfather, Don Davis.

Per Damien’s wishes a cremation will take place and there will be no services held at this time. The Miller Funeral Home and Crematory is serving the family. An online memorial is located at
