DEMARCO, Greg “Dion”

Glace Bay/Syd­ney Mines

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

With sad­dened hearts, we re­gret to an­nounce the sud­den pass­ing of Greg Dion Demarco, age 39, on Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 15, 2017.

The son of Kathy McGean and Greg Demarco, Dion was born in Syd­ney Mines on June 14, 1977.

From his early years as a young boy ped­al­ing his bike up the street to his last days, he never backed down from any chal­lenge that life put in front of him. Dion spent his adult years as a ded­i­cated em­ployee of Snow White Dry Clean­ers. He loved life, his fam­ily and chil- dren “to the moon and back”. Whether near or far, his loved ones were al­ways close in his heart.

Left to mourn Dion’s pass­ing are his par­ents, and his chil­dren, Lo­gan (Nick), Jor­dan, Chastity, Jeremy, Bran­don, Alyssa and grand­daugh­ter, Aleah.

Dion is sur­vived by brothers, Nick (An­gela), Chris (Erin), both of Al­berta; step-brother, Joey and step-sis­ter, Marie. He is also sur­vived by step-fa­ther, Dale; grand­par­ents, Ethel Mae and Car­men Demarco and Christina (Boyd) Crews, Syd­ney Mines.

Dion was pre­de­ceased by his lov­ing grand­fa­ther, role model and friend, Ger­ald “Jerry” Crews.

Cre­ma­tion has taken place. Vis­i­ta­tion will be held on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 19, 2017 in J. M. Jobes Fu­neral Home, 635 Main St., Syd­ney Mines, from 7-9 p.m.

The fu­neral mass will take place Mon­day at 10 a.m. in Holy Fam­ily Church, Syd­ney Mines, with Fr. James Oliver of­fi­ci­at­ing.

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions in his mem­ory may be made to Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hospi­tal Stroke Unit.

Ex­pres­sions of sym­pa­thy may be for­warded to his fam­ily at www.jmjobesfu­ner­al­home.com. “Those we love don’t go away. They walk be­side us ev­ery day.”
