Damien Dothard ("Steele") Cause of Death: Aneurysm

Here are full details on the death of Damien Dothard ("Damien Steele" in WWE developmental and for one televised WWE match, and in Deep South Wrestling).

According to Julie Patterson, who told me that she dated him on and off for nine years, Damien, 33, died of a brain aneurysm at his home in Smyrna, Georgia. He was a personal trainer at the Vinings Club, a social club in Atlanta with full health center facilities.

Other wrestlers have died of aneurysms, a byproduct of head trauma. Damien had not wrestled since 2006.

The funeral will be this Wednesday, July 29, at Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church, Highway 5, Roopville, Georgia, at the corner of Highway 27 South and Highway 5 East. For the time oof the service, call the church directly at 770-854-8662.

His friends have put up a Facebook page, "In loving memory of Damien Dothard."

Damien has been my personal trainer and dear friend for over a year. We all loved him and will miss him. He was incredibly smart, funny, and took great care of himself and those around him. He was a great light to all those who had the pleasure of knowing him. My heart goes out to his friends and family, especially his boys, who I know he loved very much.

His funeral is this Wednesday, July 29th at Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church, Hwy 5, Roopville, Ga. 30170 at 2pm. We have been advised to arrive early to the church.

Please consider a donation to his family to help with costs and of course, to help his kids, care of Damien's mother, Mrs. Sarah Henderson, 170 Hickory Circle, Carrollton, Ga. 30016-7993.
