PLAINFIELD, NJ — Plainfield woke up Friday to the news that blogger and former Public Information Officer Dan Damon has died. He had written on Facebook about some complications from foot surgery, and he was scheduled for a procedure this week.

Nat Singleton wrote, "Dan Damon, my partner of 43 years, went gentle into that goodnight this morning. No words of solace can express how I feel. Every day was an adventure. Every day we had something new to talk about. Dan, good fellow, we will meet again in that great Beyond."

Union County Freeholder Rebecca Williams said, "Pray, please...for those who are weary and weak and who will not see tomorrow in this earthly realm. May you rest in God's peace, Dan Damon. God loves us all. 💜"
