Demetrious graduated from Platt High School in 1986. Despite being ill for many years, he did not allow his illness to weaken his work ethic. He was a self-employed handyman known to many as the “scrap man” with painting as his main pride and specialty. Although Demetrious did not have a family of his own, he was vital part to all he interacted with and he was well loved by children and adults alike. Demetrious did not have a home church but he had a deep love of Christ. Many will miss him but we take comfort in knowing that we shall one day meet again in the light.
