Mike Demko graduated from All Saints High School in Detroit and immediately enlisted in the Army at only 17 years old. He served in Germany during the construction of the Berlin Wall.
When he returned home, he met and married his wife, Frankie. Together they had 4 children. Mike had a long career at General Motors where he was a talented machine repairman, and later toolmaker, until his retirement in 2007.
Mike was an avid racquetball player and enjoyed being outdoors and physically active. In his later years, he could be found riding his bike or walking outdoors several times a day. Mike was very handy and able to fix almost anything. He was active with his local American Legion and VFW chapters, and he was always willing to lend a helping hand whenever anyone needed it. He was a faithful supporter of many charities, especially those dedicated to less fortunate children and blind people. Most importantly, Mike loved Jesus and took great comfort in his relationship with the Lord.
