To the family of Nick Demma: I was so saddened to learn of Nick’s passing. My heart sank. We are related on both my mother and father’s side of the family. During the late forties Nick and his dad George came up here to Worcester, Massachusetts to visit my mom Kaliopi and my dad, Christo Demma who operated a grocery store and wouldn’t you know instead of going outdoors to play Nick dutifully helped my dad in the store, he was that kind of guy. This small act of kindness endeared him in the hearts of my parents forever. In recent years, Nick and I had many long telephone conversations in which I grew to know Nick as a compassionate and loving person. I will really miss him. Sam Demma Worcester, Ma.

I enjoyed getting to know Nick and discussing his vision for his building in downtown. He would always insist on buying me lunch and brought our office bagels and treats on numerous occasions along with roses from his garden. So sorry for your family's loss. Melinda Copp with Main Street Jonesborough

My thoughts are with you on the passing of Mr. Demma. I spoke with him on several occasions about the restoration of his building in Jonesborough's Historic District and always enjoyed our conversations. Sincerely, Bill Kennedy, Chair of the Jonesborough Historic Zoning Commission
