He was predeceased by his sister Agatha. Born in Jersey City, NJ, Tony was the son of Nicholas and Philomena “Florence” (D’Aluisio) DeMarchi. He graduated from P.S. 15 in 1953 and Henry Snyder High School in 1957. After beginning his career at the Western Electric Company in Kearny, NJ, he joined the U.S. Army in 1961, and served at the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, AL, and in Kaiserslautern, Germany, rising to the rank of Specialist 4. Returning from the Army, he then spent the next 33 years working at Western Electric and its successor companies, from which he retired. During this time, he received an Associate’s Degree in Accounting from Middlesex County Community College. After retiring, he worked part-time for Conair in East Windsor, NJ and Pine Environmental in Windsor, NJ. Living in Kendall Park, NJ, for over 25 years, Tony then lived in Allentown, NJ. After his second retirement from Nokia and Pine Environmental Company, he moved to Columbus, NJ where he made many friends. Since he was a teenager, Tony loved cars. He also was a devoted NY Yankees fan as a kid, so much so that his boyhood friends gave him the nickname “DiMag,” because they thought his last name sounded like Joe DiMaggio’s. Tony will be sorrowfully missed as well by friends, countless cousins, and relatives too numerous to count. The family extends special thanks to Dr. Andrew Costin and Dr. Chad Stockham of Princeton Medical Group and everyone at Deborah Heart and Lung Hospital for their many years of dedication to Tony’s health and well-being.
