Damian Jatindar Olander
Damian Jatindar Olander, 27, of Lincoln passed away on Sunday, November 8, 2020. Born on February 6, 1993 in Pune, Maharashtra, India. He was adopted by Bob and Becci Olander at 15 months old. From that day forward, Damian changed his family’s lives in the most amazing ways. He had many obstacles in life yet lived every day of his life as a celebration. Damian had autism and was non-verbal, but he spoke volumes. He was a great teacher to us all. Damian showed us unconditional love. He taught us patience, understanding, compassion and love. He taught us to truly appreciate all the simple things in life. Damian taught us that family and friends are the most important gifts in life and are to be cherished.
Damian is survived by his parents, Bob and Becci Olander, sister Aubrey (Matt) Trowbridge, nieces and nephews, Jaya Olander, Jazmin Lewis, Jax Olander, Kane Trowbridge, brother, Vijay Olander, sister, Lacey Olander and Corey Chase, nephews and nieces, Kai Krause, Nova Krause, Ender Krause and Ariella Chase and sister, Quinlan Olander. Damian had many, many aunts, uncles and cousins that played a big part in his life. Damian was loved by so many. We thank you all for loving Damian and giving him opportunities to live his life as a celebration, like only Damian could do.
