Chris Demyen was the victim of a senseless crime that will be felt for years to come. A loving father, a caring husband and a true friend to everyone who crossed his path was killed May 15th 2013. No one has the right to end a life, especially when the life affects the lives of a whole community. Chris leaves behind a young family with two beautiful children and his wife Amber who is expecting their third child. Chris has been the owner operator of the Acton Water Company for nearly 20 years. The community will always remember his helpfulness and willingness to provide his services even to family’s who could not afford it. We would appreciate any donations to help with the arrangements as well as allow the family to get back on their feet after this life changing event.

Wow, I have actually met Chris about ten years ago when I was only about fifteen years old. When I met him through another friend, he didn't share life lessons, politics or anything of that matter for me to remember him. But I remembered this man for being hard working, he was in the middle of filling up one of his large trucks to make a last minute weekend delivery to a local resident. Despite how busy he was, I remember Chris stopping to have a friendly conversation with us, no matter how busy he seemed to be his smile was warm and welcoming. I can't imagine what his wife and kids feel right now, I have yet to experience death on such a personal level, but I have lost loved ones and I know when my loved ones passed, they left behind memories, stories and kind-heartedness that I continue to spread onto others, and to my children, with hopes of getting the life lessons to help us be civilized and understanding of one another. It may seem so easily to give up at this point, to lose faith in humanity. You probably ask yourself if there's any good will left on this planet, let me tell you there is. Despite how ever many horrible dark people there are in this world, that number doesn't even come close to how many good men there are like Chris, and it's people like Chris who spread that good and eventually dillute and weaken the bad. Whoever may read this, we're out there, the good are out there and we will continue to spread good faith.
