Victor Edward Demski

Just ten days before celebrating his ninety-fifth birthday, Victor Edward Demski passed away on June 21, 2024.

            Vic was born on July 2,1929 in New Kensington, PA, the son of Joseph and Josephine Demski.

            He attended local schools in Pennsylvania and in 1951 graduated from The University of Pittsburgh with a B.S. Degree in Metallurgical Engineering. Soon after he accepted a position with Allegheny-Ludlum Steel Corp. in Leechburg, PA. However the Korean War interfered. Vic was drafted into the US Army and spent two years at Dugway Proving Ground in Utah.

            He then returned to Allegheny-Ludlum for a short period of time before accepting a position with Rodney Metals in New Bedford.  Vic had a successful 35 year career with Rodney Metals (also known as Teledyne). After retiring in 1996, he worked with a national company interviewing recreational fisherman and inspecting their “catch”. He always maintained the fishermen were very honest!

            Vic then moved on to his favorite job-The Mattapoisett Harbormaster Group, spending time in his favorite location and enjoying the whole scene.

            Vic was truly a family man. He spent hours playing basketball, fishing, painting boats and planning the next vacation.

            Vic is survived by his wife JoAnne (Nicolson), sons Timothy, Thomas, and David, two grandchildren Elizabeth Tomlinson (Duane) and Nicholas Demski (Ashley) and four great-grandchildren-Jameson and Jonathon Tomlinson and Olivia and Jackson Demski.

            Respecting Vic’s wishes, private services have been held.  Arrangements are with the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home for Funerals, 50 County Rd. (Rt. 6), Mattapoisett. For online guestbook, visit

    Sorry to hear of your loss. Vic was a friend of my Dad at Rodney, and a pleasure to chat with as Asst. Harbormaster. Best wishes to you and your family.
