DeMarco was well-versed in many areas, he formally worked in Logistics, Human Resources, Marketing, and as a Pharmacy Technician. In his leisure time DeMarco enjoyed cooking, singing, playing video games, recording music, but more than anything he loved spending time with his family and his favorite pastime was talkIng on the phone daily to his grandmother.

I’m so sorry to hear about this. I remember him sharing an apartment with my ex. He was always so nice to me.
Life in this world can be hard, life in this can bring tears an pain, but each day we rely on Jehovah who gives us power beyond what is normal. My deepest condolences to the Edwards family. Yes, support and comfort will carry you through.
Spencer Ricks says
DeMarco was a shining light in the lives of everyone he touched. The power of his love and friendship were matched only by his tenacity in defense of those he cared for. I don’t want to believe this has happened, but I take solace in knowing that it happened instantly and he will know suffering and pain no longer. We love you Brobro, and you are and always will be so dearly missed.

Brian Diaz says
My dearest DeMarco, I still can’t believe this happened to you. You were such an “oddly unique” soul and we truly were fortunate to have you in our lives. You loved us and defended us fiercely and you were loyal with no exceptions. Thank you for you all those years of friendship, late night chats, joking, venting and even helping with my music and believing in me when I didn’t even believe in myself. I will always love you “Alex”.
Rest in peace…
Christopher Turner says
Demarco …You were one of the sweetest, funniest, and happiest guys I had ever met in high school and I’m so happy we reconnected after I moved and you never changed. I’m so so sorry to the Edwards family. Demarco was certainly one of a kind and could brighten anyone’s day in a moment.
On a side note. You are with Aaliyah and Selina now boo and you better be hangin out and shakin your butt with them!! 😛 <3

Franz Dvoracek says
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. When a grandparent spends quality time with her grandchildren, it hurts just the same. I must say RIP until Jesus calls and says come out, and u will be free From all your sins. (John 5:28,29)
I love you!
Clairista Phifer says
