Albert T. DeMarco “Big Al”
Albert T. DeMarco “Big Al” passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014
at the Worland Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center. He was 80 years
Al was born on June 3, 1934 in Derby, Connecticut. He was the first-born child of Albert V. and Helen F. DeMarco to whom he was a pride and joy. Al grew up living next door to St. Joseph Parish and Catholic School. He attended grades K-8 at the Catholic School and graduated from Shelton High School where he played the position of center in football.
He married Barbara Rourke and they had two daughters. Al was dedicated to his wife and children and provided for them generously. Sadly Barbara, his wife of 38 years, died at the age of 59 from cancer.
Al worked for his family’s business, Shelton Laundry. He then drove tractor-trailers over the road for a short time. In 1979, he got his dream job at Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford, Connecticut driving tractor-trailer trucks, later becoming a forklift operator until his retirement in 2006. He always commented that he had the best job in the world. He devoted his life to his Catholic Faith, his family, Jesus and the church. He lived honestly, trustworthily and was known for his dynamic sense of humor. He was a “man’s man.”
In 1992, Al fell in love with his friend of 12 years, Cari Celeste. They were soulmates and married in 1997. In 2005, they fulfilled their passion for Wyoming by purchasing a home in Worland. It was their dream come true. Al and C.C. blended quickly into the lifestyle and community they had always yearned for.
Sidgie, their Labrador was Al’s “Palzy-Walzy” and remained at his side even at the time of his death.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and his first wife, Barbara “Pinky” DeMarco.
Survivors include his loving wife, Cari C. “C.C.” DeMarco; daughters, Maureen DeMarco of Ormond Beach, Florida and Kathleen (Joseph) Ballaro of Huntington, Connecticut; one brother, Thomas (Jackie) DeMarco of Derby, Connecticut; one sister, Marlene Sama of Shelton, Connecticut; five grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mass of the Christian Burial will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 14 at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church with Rev. Ray Rodriguez officiating. Rite of Committal will follow at Riverview Memorial Gardens Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the NRA Foundation or to St Mary Magdalen Catholic Church in care of Bryant Funeral Home, P.O.
