Stephen Demarest Memorial Fund

Stephen Demarest was a kind man with a big personality and a big heart.  A devoted Catholic and family man. He would always put others first and always saw the best in people. On Saturday October 7, 2017, he passed away suddenly. He leaves behind a Daughter, who just turned 10, a son who will be turning 7 in a couple weeks and an unborn son that is expected to arrive at the end of the month. He loved his kids and was looking forward to the newest arrival. It’s sad to know that he won’t be around to meet his new son and to see his children grow into their adulthood. He always instilled good morals and religious beliefs to his family. Growing up, friends would remember him as a friend they can always count on. He had a passion for photography and would always have a camera attached to his hip. We have the honor of being Godparents to his children and he was also one of the groomsman in our wedding. He worked as a Field Service Representative for Film Permits Unlimited for the past 15 years. Everywhere Steve went, he would always take time out to strike up a small conversation, it didn’t matter with who. 

Stephen will be truly missed. Our hearts break for his children. We were asked by Stephen’s Parents to help set up this Go Fund Me Page.  We are asking for help with the financial burden the family will encounter for funeral expenses. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. 

We thank you for all your help.
