Born in Brockton, “Pat” & his family came to live in East Boston for a short time & then moved to Revere over 70 years ago. “Pat” joined the U.S. Army in January of 1953 & served until December of 1954, serving as a Corporal. Upon returning from the military, he began working in the construction field, soon joining with his two brothers, founding their own construction company, “DeMarco Brothers Construction.” Later, he would found his own construction company & continue completing his college education at Wentworth Institute of Boston. And, in God’s time, would enter into the world of academia as a Professor at Wentworth Institute for over 30 years, teaching building codes, their application, the administrative structure & actual on-site experiences. He retired from Wentworth with the honorable title of Professor Emeritus. Professor DeMarco would long relish in the joy that his teaching & his students brought to him. He held his membership with the Revere Council, Knights of Columbus #179 for over 60 years. He was an active member of the Immaculate Conception Parish Community and was indeed remembered for his volunteered services & certainly for his magnanimous generosity. Until the day of his passing, he remained on the payroll at Revere City Hall within several departments advising & consulting in building codes and ethics. He held that position for over 20 years.

He is the beloved husband of 64 years to Jennie (Forti) DeMarco. Cherished father of Damian B. DeMarco & wife Mary of Revere, David DeMarco & wife Donna of Marlborough, MA, Daria Saia & husband Charles J. “Chuck” Saia of Londonderry, NH & Deirdre Damiano & husband Stephen Damiano of Revere. Devoted grandfather of Daria C. Saia of Derry, NH, Stephen Damiano, Jr. & wife Jacqueline of Revere, AnnMarie Censullo & husband Stephen of Londonderry, NH, Christopher Damiano of Revere, Salvatore C. Saia of Londonderry, NH, Nicholas D. DeMarco of Revere, Gina M. DeMarco of Manhattan, NY, & Sara J. DeMarco of Marlborough, MA. Dear brother to Marie Fowler & husband Joseph of Tampa Bay, FL & the late Joseph, Antonio & James V. DeMarco. He is also lovingly survived by 2 great grandchildren, Tresor & Gianna & many proud nieces & nephews.

A very special acknowledgement to the entire staff at Mennino Intensive Care Unit – B at Boston Medical Center.

All of you have earned the heartfelt title of “Angel”.
