  • Congressional Record - 4/3/1969

    "Specialist Demby was born in Havre de Grace and lived in Harford County all his life, until he was drafted into the Army last July.

    In September, after basic training at Fort Bragg NC, the infantryman was married to the former Janice Harris, of Abingdon MD. Mrs. Harris is expecting a baby this spring.

    Specialist Demby was killed March 11 in Saigon in a skirmish with the enemy.

    The son of Mrs. Evelyn Ricardson, and the stepson of Harold Richardson, he was the idol of his six stepsisters and many cousins, according to his aunt.

    Specialist Demby, who turned 20 last August, was a track and basketball star at Bel Air High School where he was a member of the class of 1967.

    Besides his wife and their child, and his parents, he is survived by a brother, Alexander Demby, an apprentice electrician; his stepsisters Lenore, Vanessa, Teresa, Victoria, Doreen, and Donna Richardson; and a number of aunts, uncles, and cousins, all of Harford County."
