Nicole - I worked at Farnham with Mr. Demko and he had a heart of gold and took many boys & girls like you under his wing and loved them all. . . When my brother went to Afganistan to serve in Desert Storm Mr. D took a group of his "boys" and made them his school climate committee - they hung yellow ribbons around the campus, planted flowers, pulled weeds and gained self esteem while doing it! He was a wonderful man who taught me a lot in the years I worked for him. May he rest in peace.

Mr. Demko was the principal at Farnham Elementary School while I attended there in the 1980's. He was a wonderful person and I am sad to learn about his passing. His kindness knew no bounds. As a child my home life had abruptly turned bad and I often had outbursts at school. I remember one time being "brought to the principal's office" and sitting down with Mr. Demko. I remember his words so clearly "What are we going to do with you?" It wasn't said with anything but kindness and a true desire to help me fit in. He came up with a special assignment for me that helped me to find a little self worth and to keep me out of trouble. Another time when my brother and I missed our bus, Mr. Demko drove to our home to pick us up in his truck. Several people inspired me over the years and helped me become the person I am today. Mr. Demko's influence, while brief, made a huge impact. I was watching a video of an old Christmas performance and thought to look Mr. Demko up. I am grateful that he was in my life, even if for only a few years.

Mr. Demko was truly a loving, caring, and inspirational individual. He was one of the most approachable people I ever knew, and expressed genuine interest in and concern for me, and for so many others. Mr. Demko was one of the reasons I chose a career in Education, and to this day I still strive to emulate his kind and giving way. I have thought of him often throughout my life since being a student at both Farnham Elementary and Ida Price Middle Schools where he was Principal. I actually learned about his passing after having a dream in which I recall he was delivering a difficult message to me and a group of teachers who, in my dream, must have worked for him. I can't recall what the message was, but I was so appreciative of how he delivered it to us that I approached him afterward to thank him and tell him how much I respected him. This dream prompted me to look him up and subsequently learn of the sad news of his passing. Despite the sad nature of the news, however, I was overcome by a rush of very happy memories and positive thoughts. (And what better impression or legacy could a person hope to leave behind than that?!) If I could send one last thought off to Mr. Demko, it would be exactly that sentiment from my dream: one of great thanks and respect for all he was to me, and all he did for me.

And in addition to the thanks and respect, may peace and love be with you and your family, Mr. Demko.
