My first visit t in 2004 and my last visit to Mr. Demos at Chemalloy in 2015 are still fresh in my memory: his interesting past story in Shanghai; the Bryn Mawr tour; the farewell at the airport... Mr. Demos treated me as his own younger generation. He changed people's lives, mine was one of them. His spirit and personality are deserved for respect and admiration from everyone. His kindness and generosity will be in my heart forever.

Tony will be missed. He was a remarkable man, I worked for him for 17 years and it was an experience that I relished. I learned something every time we spoke. I am sorry we didn't keep in touch after I retired. He treated my son Chris who took over from me very well.
I know he is in heaven because he was a great and generous man.
May he have fair winds and following seas.

I was so sorry to read of Tony's passing...I can still remember meeting Madge for the first time, and she set up an interview with Tony. I was hired and worked for Chemalloy for over 11 years as a Sales Engineer. Tony was my first MENTOR...and taught me everything I know about metallurgy. It helped launch my very successful career, and I am forever indebted to having met Tony and Madge...he will be sorely missed!

At Chemalloy we say that Tony was the last of his kind. He was a brilliant businessman, he built a wonderful business from nothing. But he put his people before profits, he changed so many lives in his time, including mine. He was my boss, but he was also a friend. You could talk to him about anything, and he was always offering answers or help. I remember I was about 20, and he was 70 and out in plant working his ass off right there with us. I knew right there he was a special person. I can never thank him enough for all he’s done for me and my family. He will be missed but the memories will last forever

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I was fortunate to have worked with Tony and then for him for some 40 years. He was one remarkable man. The love he had for his family, employees and customers was without question. I can honestly say I’ve never met a more fairer, benevolent, loving, caring person that would probably give you his last dime. May the GOOD LORD comfort the family and TONY, I hope to see you in Heaven when my time is called.

I'm so sorry to hear of Tony's passing. He was a wonderful man, and I have fond memories of him with Surgicorps wearing pink scrubs and beautiful bouffant caps in the OR in Guatemala. He had a generous heart. He was kind and thoughtful and always had a smile. Much love to his family. Thinking of you all. ❤
