Anthony Robert DeMichael, enjoyed life at beach

April 4, 2021

Anthony Robert DeMichael, 76, of Selbyville, formerly of Doylestown, Pa., passed away Thursday, April 1, 2021, at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin, Md.

Tony was born in Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. 18, 1944, son of the late Antony DeMichael and the late Irene (DiSiro) DeMichael.  He worked hard to complete his degree in accounting at night from the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, while working fulltime and raising his family.

Anthony retired as the director of credit from Pioneer Electronics in 2003, and has enjoyed the last 18 years of retirement.  After moving to the beach fulltime about eight years ago, he has been blessed to make so many friends at his home in Bayside.  

Tony enjoyed a simpler life at the beach.  He enjoyed fishing, golfing, traveling, singing and spending time at the ocean and the pool at The Point in Bayside.  Tony was a voracious reader, and enjoyed playing Scrabble and cards, especially Pinochle.  He was a faithful Catholic and the treasurer of the Delmarva Whiskey Club.  Above all, Tony loved his family and loved going to his grandchildren’s sporting events.  He was a true role model for his children and grandchildren and an example of how a man should love and provide for his family.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his two brothers, Teddy and Vincent DeMichael.  He is survived by his loving wife of almost 57 years, Eileen (Schatzle) DeMichael; two children, Anthony C. DeMichael and his wife Amy of Doylestown, and Diana DiPino and her husband Charles of Ellicott City, Md.; and seven grandchildren, Nicole DeMichael, Danielle DeMichael, Anthony “Tony” DeMichael, Alyssa DiPino, Anthony DiPino, Charlie DiPino and Sophia DiPino.  

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, April 10, at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, 35318 Church Road, Frankford.
