Born in Bethlehem he was the son of the late Michael and Frances (Puskas) Demyan. Gino was the beloved husband of Sandra A. (Wagner) Demyan with whom he shared 53 years of marriage. He started his career off as a millwright at Bethlehem Steel. After learning the metal building industry he became the owner and operator of Allentown Applicators and Erectors for over 35 years, constructing many of the metal buildings in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding area. After retirement Gino continued to consult on many projects and took great pride in working at Bat Caddy where he did various repair work on motorized golf push carts. He was an avid golfer, getting three holes-in-one, and loved to fish. Gino was part of the prestigious Pioneers Club as a long-standing member of the Metal Building Contractors and Erectors Association, serving many years on the board of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter.
