Anthony Paul DeMarco passed away on September 25, 2017, at age 54, from cardiac arrest, in Pittsburgh, PA. Always positive, loving and genuine, Anthony was devoted to his family and adored his nieces and nephew, giving them guidance, love, attention, and laughter. Born in New Martinsville, WV, Anthony moved with his family to Ponce, PR and then Pittsburgh where he attended Mt. Lebanon High School. In Puerto Rico, Anthony, his brother Dominic, and many friends played on a school baseball team sponsored by his father and PPG Industries. Anthony had a lifelong interest in automobiles and enjoyed rebuilding cars with Dominic and his father. He surprised his father, who was returning from a long trip to Japan, with a 1968 Dodge Charger, a work in progress. Together, with Dominic and their Father’s guidance, they rebuilt the Charger, something which Anthony was very proud of. Anthony attended California University of Pennsylvania and held multiple degrees in advanced aeronautical and automobile mechanics. He lived in Bowling Green, KY for several years, working at Peterbilt where he met Betty Forbis. They shared many years together and remained long-time friends. Anthony was always proud of his surroundings and willing to share experiences with just about anyone. During visits with friends, he would take them to the local Corvette assembly plant for tours, showing them around and introducing them to everyone in town. After a career at Peterbilt, Anthony returned home to Pittsburgh to be closer to family. He worked alongside his sisters Ava and Gina, and brother-in-law, Rob, at Little Earth Productions as a valued production lead. Anthony was always able to strike up a conversation with just about anyone wherever he went. He was admired for his positive attitude, quick wit, sense of humor, and broad range of knowledge .Anthony was the beloved son of the late Albert G and Lillian E (DelCarlo) DeMarco and is survived by siblings Dr. Gina DeMarco, Dr. Lisa DeMarco (Dr. Leonard Goldman), Ava DeMarco (Robert Brandegee), and Dominic DeMarco. He was a devoted and loving uncle to Bryan and Alexa Goldman, Katelin and Sierra Brandegee, and Ashley DeMarco. Anthony made friends easily and was loved by everyone, and we will always carry his memory in our hearts.

Lebanon on Friday, October 6 from 2-4 pm and 6-8 PM, and Saturday, October 7 from 9-9:45 AM followed by a Mass of Christian Burial in St. Bernard Church at 10 AM to be followed with entombment in Mt Lebanon Cemetery.
