June 1934- November 2020
Joseph Demers, husband of Irene for 65 years, passed away peacefully on November 17th in Pooler, GA.
Many in the Orange Park and Middleburg area will remember his dedication for decades as a tireless middle and high school science teacher, realtor and as a volunteer with hospice and arthritis support groups.
A native of Sanford, ME, his time as a Captain in the Air Force sent him around the country before settling in the Orange Park/Middleburg area in the late 1960s. (Jacksonville FL)
In addition to his loving wife, he leaves behind very proud children, Owen, (wife Donna) Todd, (wife Patti) and Rio, adoring grand children Danielle, Michael, Jeremy, Kristin, Lauren, Savannah, Stephanie and Nick. And a few great grand children, who will one day be entertained by stories of the family patriarch.
He will be remembered for his kind heart and spirit, having never met a stranger and never complaining regardless of what life threw at him. His loving family will remember his powerful example of overcoming obstacles, enjoying life to its fullest and making everyone around him feel special.

I will always remember playing computer games with Opa. As well as picking blackberries for a pie and tangerines from his and Oma’s tree.
