On August 16th, 2012 Michael R. Demarsico was killed in action while serving in Afghanistan. He was only 20 years old. Michael was a great person. He was selfless, he put others before himself. Michael chose to become the point man for his platoon because he wanted to keep them safe. After finding 15 IED’s Michael was killed when he came across his 16th. Michael leaves behind a Mother and a Father, 3 sisters, and 1 brother. But you cannot forget his loving community and friends. The day that Michaels body came home thousands gathered along the route to pay their respects to the fallen soldier. At Michaels funeral once again thousands gathered from the funeral parlor to the cemetery. He was truly loved by many. He will always be our hometown hero.
Pfc. Michael R. Demarsico II
