Elmo Demo, 91

August 16, 2014

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. Elmo Demo, 91, of Chantilly Avenue died peacefully on Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014, in the loving care of Williamstown Commons.

Born in North Adams on May 25, 1923, son of Martin and Elvira Baroni Demo, he attended local schools.

He traveled to Europe as a young man and was trapped in Italy during World War II. He fought with the Resistance.

A barber for 58 years, three generations of customers sat in Mr. Demo's chair. Elmo's Barbershop on River Street, which he purchased in 1955, was a friendly meeting place where everyone was welcome. Many of North Adams' problems were solved there and many people depended on the large clock in his window to check the time.

He and his wife, the former Filomena Grande, were married on Sept. 4, 1950, in the former St. Anthony's Church.

Besides his wife of 63 years, he leaves his son, Sergio Demo and his wife, Gail, and two grandsons, Nathan and Wyatt.

His sister, Doris Demo, died on Nov. 7, 2011.

FUNERAL NOTICE A Liturgy of Christian Burial for Mr. Demo will be celebrated Monday, Aug. 25, at 11 from St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church. Burial will follow in Southview Cemetery.

Calling hours will be Monday morning from 9 to 10:30 at Flynn & Dagnoli-Montagna Home for Funerals, Central Chapels, 74 Marshall St., North Adams. Memorial donations may made to the North Adams Ambulance Service.


Recollections & Sympathy For the Family
Post Comment
Sergio & Family -
Prayers and condolences. I knew your father long before I knew he was your father. He and Bill Perenick both cut my hair for nearly twenty years at his shop near my Memare's house in North Adams. He was always patient and kind to me. Only within the last decade did I learn he was your Dad. It was a great moment and I thought of you often after that.

Sergio & Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Although I never met your Dad, I heard from so many that he was a wonderful, kind man. He will always live on in your many great memories of him.
Peace to you, and your family.

Hey Serge,
As close a friend as I'll ever have - with you - I am saddened for your(and Phil, Gail and the boys')loss. Having spent much time at your house in our "younger days" I had many occasions to see the kind, gentle nature of Elmo. Seeing Elmo and Phil at Fall Folliage and Christmas time was always great joy. Elmo was a wonderful, peacful and pleasant man (as is your mom a wonderful lady). May he rest in peace!!!
With love - Steve and Karen

Rest in peace Elmo. My condolences to his family. Anyone who grew up in N. Adams remembers Elmo. I remember my Dad taking me to Elmo's for my haircuts as a young boy.
