William Bennett Damus
February 16, 2021
WILLIAM BENNETT DAMUS, age 66, died February 16, 2021 at his residence in Las Vegas. Bill was born in Seattle, WA and was an infant when his family bravely moved to the then dusty little town of Las Vegas, despite not knowing anyone and without previously secured employment. Bill was the youngest of three children, all who grew up in Las Vegas. His brother, John W. Damus predeceased him, as did his parents Walter Damus, Jr., a car dealer, casino manager and owner and Juneve Key Damus, a fashion model and motivational speaker. Bill is survived by his oldest brother, Charles M. Damus, a practicing attorney, his nephew, John C. Damus, both of Las Vegas, his twin cousins, Jim and Joan Frydenlund and his aunt, Flora Belle Key, all of Seattle. Bill was a graduate of Valley High School and attended UNLV. He was well traveled and had a colorful life, most of which was spent living in Las Vegas and Southern California, where he sold home spas. Retired, Bill loved cooking for his many friends and he will be greatly missed. Post Covid, his family plans on having a future ceremony to remember Bill. Services will be private.

I knew him for short time at Fremont Jr. High. So many many years ago. I liked him.
