Tallmadge — The U.S. Senate passed a bill July 10 that, if signed by President Barack Obama, would rename the Tallmadge branch of the Post Office the “Lance Corporal Daniel Nathan Deyarmin Jr. Post Office Building.”
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown introduced the bill April 26, 2013. He partnered with U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, who sponsored the original legislation the U.S. House of Representatives passed in March.
The building, located at 162 Northeast Ave., would be renamed in honor of Daniel “Nate” Deyarmin, a Tallmadge resident and Marine who died in the line of duty in Iraq on Aug. 1, 2005.
A 2002 graduate of Tallmadge High School, Daniel Deyarmin was 22 years old when he died.
“Lance Corporal Daniel Nathan Deyarmin Jr. was a committed member of the U.S. armed forces who fought to secure America’s freedoms,” Brown said in a press release. “His sacrifice, and that of his family, should not be forgotten. By renaming the Tallmadge Branch Post Office after him, we can honor his legacy and the example he set for all Americans.
