Happy Birthday, Acen

Acen Andrew Edward Demick
of Johnson City
Acen Andrew Edward Demick, 5, of Johnson City, went to be with our Lord and Jesus and join the angels Friday, September 3, 2010, at Upstate Medical Center after a very brief illness. Acen is predeceased by his great-great-grandfather, "Pop" John Yoder; and his great-grandfathers, Thomas E. Babcock and "Cookie Monster" Edward Demick. Acen is survived by his wonderful, loving daddy, Drew Demick; his little sister, Serenity "Reny" Demick; his biological mother, Jessica Demick of Colorado; his great-great-grandmother, "Nana" Esther Yoder; and his great-grandmother, "Bopchi" Shirley Demick of Vestal; his grandparents, "Popa" Edward and "Mommy" Patti Ruland; his aunts and uncle, Arielle, Shayla, Kayana, Cambri and Chancelor Ruland of Johnson City; his "Uncy Tom" Thomas and aunt Lori Babcock and cousins, Thomas Babcock and Rachel Warfel of Vestal; his aunt and uncle, "Aunt Rhea" Debora and Darin Bunch and cousins, Acen Davia and Cadmen Bunch of South Carolina; along with many other distant relatives and close friends. Acen was a bright, beautiful young man with a zest for life and brought blessed joy to all he met. He was our little man, looking forward to starting kindergarten and soccer and was a member of the Johnson City Wrestling Club. Acen will be missed by all as he joins Jesus to become our littlest angel with his grandfathers in heaven. We love you, Acen, and know you will always be with us until we can be with you again.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Valleyview Alliance Church, Vestal. The family will receive friends on Tuesday at 10 a.m. until the time of the service. In lieu of flowers, the family would greatly appreciate donations to help defray funeral costs. Arrangements are by the Barber Memorial Home, Inc., Johnson City.
