Erin Michael DeMarco passed from this life on Saturday, August 5, 2017, at the young age of 29. Erin was born in Lafayette on July 27, 1988 and was a lifelong resident of Franklin. He was a loving husband, father, son, nephew, and friend who was also a great provider. If you knew Erin, you knew his passion for anything with a motor, especially his truck. He was a gifted mechanic and was always ready to help a friend with any car troubles. Some of his favorite pastimes included getting greasy with a set of wrenches in his hands, riding dirt bikes and four-wheelers, and just being outdoors. But his true passion in life was his family, which he truly loved and treasured spending time with at family gatherings. Even though taken from this life too soon, Erin definitely left his mark on all he came in contact with. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him, but will also be fondly remembered for his fun-loving ways.
Those he leaves to cherish his memory include his wife, Ashley Lynne DeMarco; his children, Kirsten Powe, Caiden DeMarco, Leelan DeMarco, Hollie Galentine, Patrick Picard, Nevaeh DeMarco, as well as his soon to be born son, Joseph Michael Leo DeMarco; his mother, Demara Lynn DeMarco; his step-father, Carl "Shorty" Blanchard; his aunts and uncles, Gay DeMarco, Angie DeMarco and her husband Richard Tabb, Joseph DeMarco, Donna DeMarco, Dwayne DeMarco and his wife Tina, Sandra B. Richard, Eric Blanchard Sr. and Carol B. Schultz; as well as numerous cousins, family members, and friends.
Those he is reunited with that have gone before him include his maternal grandparents, Joseph DeMarco and Jacqueline Robicheaux DeMarco; his paternal grandparents, Elton and Barbara Perez Blanchard; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and family members.
