He was a life-long member of Trinity United Presbyterian Church in Bergholz. He enjoyed hunting, traveling, bowling and golfing, having had four hole-in-ones. He was proud of the fact he participated in the American Bowling Congress national tournaments for more than 50 years. He was a true believer in honesty and telling the truth. He was a member of the VFW, NRA, Ducks Unlimited and National Wild Turkey Federation. He was also a life-long member of the Loyal Order of the Moose. 

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his former longtime companion and true love, Annie DeMarco. 

He is survived by his companion, Harriet Davis; his “daughter”, Honchie DeMarco; his cousins, Lou and Sandy Steinmetz and Lydia and Mike Hershey; and many wonderful friends whom he considered his family.

Per his request cremation has taken place and there will be no formal services.

In his memory, please consider donations to the Bergholz EMS or the Bergholz Volunteer Fire Department.
