April 9, 1917 – March 18, 2013

Tony DeMoro, of Diamond Springs, passed away peacefully on Monday afternoon, March 18, 2013, at his home with his entire family by his side.

Migrating from Italy and settling in the Colorado area in the early 1900s, his father met his mother, a local girl. They were married and began their family with Tony being the second child of ten to be born in Denver.  Living as a young adult in the Great Depression era, he most assuredly saw his share of hard times.  In the early to mid 1940s, he headed for the San Francisco Bay area.  There he worked as a mechanic foreman for S&C Ford Motors in San Francisco until his retirement in the late 1970s.

About a decade after arriving in the Bay area, Tony met his wife of 52 years, Margaret, where they raised their only child, Elizabeth (Liz), at their home in South San Francisco.  As Liz became a young adult, Tony and Margaret moved to Ben Lomond near Santa Cruz, Calif.  In the early 80s, Liz began her family and was living in Lake Tahoe.  Not wanting to be far from Liz and their grandchildren, Tony and Margaret moved from Ben Lomond to Diamond Springs, where they lived out the rest of their lives.

Tony will always be remembered as one with a great sense of humor and an outgoing personality. He loved to meet and greet people. Anyone who would meet Tony for the first time would instantly take a liking to him since he would easily make them feel like they were lifelong friends. He also had a number of passions with the top two on the list being cars and gardening.  He loved anything to do with cars and he absolutely enjoyed working outside tending to his lawn and garden.  Even up until just a short while ago, in his mid-90s, he would be outside making sure his lawn was watered and his driveway was swept clean.

Tony is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Liz and Jeff Janoian; and his three grandchildren:  grandson, Russ Leon, his wife, Alma and their three children, Alenna, Anthony, and Ryan;  granddaughter ,Katie Webber, her husband, Scott and their two sons, Jesse and Caden;  and granddaughter, Lisa Miller, her husband Jason, and their two daughters, Makenzie and Madison. He was dad, papa, great-papa, uncle, brother and friend. His almost 96 years of life leaves us all a wonderful legacy and his spirit and character will live on in our lives continually.

Services will be held on Wednesday, March 27, at Saint Patrick Catholic Church, 3109 Sacramento Street in Placerville, Calif. Rosary begins at 10:30 a.m., with a memorial mass following at 11 a.m.  A celebration of life will immediately follow at the Social hall. Donations can be made in Tony’s name to Snowline Hospice, 6520 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA  95619 , or online at snowlinehospice.org. Online condolences may be posted at chapelofthepinesfunerals.com.
