In 2003 Damon became the founder and owner of North Carolina Orthotics and Prosthetics, Inc. He quickly became a well-known fixture in the medical community. He helped thousands of people regain their mobility and functionality.
Everyone who knew Damon immediately references his big heart. He always wanted everyone to feel included and never met a stranger. He had a way of making people feel they were family the first time he met them. Damon is described as a gentle yet boisterous man. His amazing love for life inspired him to live each day to the fullest. He welcomed people with open arms and never wanted anyone to feel left out. He was a dreamer and determined to make things happen for everyone he knew. He is often described as “larger-than-life.” He brought smiles to everyone who knew him. He was very proud of his Pittsburgh roots and was the epitome of a “Steeler’s fan.” He would make famous “Primanti Bros” sandwiches for his fellow fans on game day. Nothing was status quo for Damon, he was well-known for his over the top culinary skills.
Damon had many talents and golf was one of his favorites. He was a founding member of the Hasentree Country Club. History will note that Damon Johncour had the very first “hole-in-one” at Hasentree. He was a legend to everyone at the club. “You’ve been Johncoured,” a favorite saying among the golfers at Hasentree, to describe coming up from behind to win, is often heard and will continue for years to come. Damon spent many happy and fun-filled hours golfing, cooking for, and being with his golf buddies.

Following Damon’s memorial service, family and friends are invited to gather at the clubhouse at Hasentree Country Club, 7305 Village Club Dr.,Wake Forest.
Of all things we know, Damon treasured most his wife Cindy, and his three children: Alaina, Garrett, and Payton. He would move any mountain in his way to make sure his family had the best of everything and never wanted for anything. Truth be told, his family, friends, and employees were all a part of his big heart and were truly loved.
