Gary Ray DeMarco

July 12, 1955-June 18, 2011

"CME-BYE"



BOUNTIFUL — Gary passed away peacefully with a smile on his face, June 18 at the home of his daughter, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born in Provo, Utah on July 12, 1955. He was the son of Louie and LaRae (World) DeMarco and had three loving sisters, Mary-Lou, Valarie, and Theresa.

He graduated from Viewmont High School in 1973 and pursued an automotive career. He later became the proud owner of Perfection Connection. He was known as the best specialty front end and suspension auto mechanic in the area. Over his lifetime he owned and restored over 50 cars leading him to high performance sand drag and snowmobile racing. His biggest passion being the infamous ‘Black Magic’ which won several awards including, ‘1st Place at the Western Nationals’, ‘NSCA Points Champion’, ‘Rookie of the Year’, ‘ISDA Best New Car’ and many others. He lived a full life of adrenaline racing adventures in his 55 years.

Gary married Sherry Lane Struhs, June 11, 1976 and had his three girls, ‘Boogee,’ ‘BeeBop,’ and ‘Biff.’ He loved taking his girls snowmobiling, sand drag racing and fishing on Bountiful Jeep Posse ‘Kids Trips.’ He was very competitive and enjoyed a good chess or card game with his daughters.

Gary was a 15 year survivor of a brain tumor that left him with limited vision, hearing, and independence. He loved listening to ‘oldies’ on the radio and dedicating his word searches and tanglewords to his family.

The family would like to extend a special thank-you to Courtnee at Lakeview Hospital’s CTU for her gentle care and compassion. They would also like to thank Harmony Hospice for making his final wishes transpire and arranging his transport to his daughter’s home.

Gary is survived by his three daughters, Anna-Marie Rowley (Brad) of West Haven, Angela DeMarco (Geoff) of Ontario, Canada and Tiffany Hall (Jason) of Clearfield. 2 granddaughters, Hope Aurora and Zoey Michelle and two grandsons, Ryan DeMarco and Sebastian DeMarco. He is also survived by his 3 sisters, many nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family. Gary is preceded in death by his parents and mentioned frequently how eager he was to return to the loving arms of his mother.

Interment of Ashes will take place during a graveside service at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 24, 2011 at the Bountiful City Cemetery. A ‘Celebration of Life’ in Gary’s honor will immediately follow the service at the West Bountiful Park, 550 West Pages Lane. Please bring your fondest memories to casually share with the family.
