I am on Facebook under: Johnny Demsick

Most of my accomplishments have been in active things. I was in Sports Illustrated for being a 3-time AAU National Wrestling Champ and did body building for 10 years eventually winning the NANBA Grand Masters competition in 2006 and 2007 for the State of Michigan. I still hold the State of Michigan Record for Chin ups (38) and Dips (47), though my wife calls it my "Chips and Dips" contest. I was blessed to have taught elementary students to be active for 32 years and to have coached soccer, weightlifting, jump rope teams, and wrestling for over 20 years total.

In truth, the greatest (and wisest) thing I've ever done was to ask Jesus into my life and the second was marrying my wife, Debbie. I have some health constraints now, but remain extremely active. Wishing all of you blessings from above!

I now live in Florida and am largely retired. I enjoy staying active and spending time with my grandchildren, who are also here in Florida! My wife and I do have a cabin in Interlochen ( by Traverse City) that we visit in the summer.

High School Story:

If you remember me it is probably as a wrestler. I am still good friends with Tommy Keramaris and Coach Lanzi, I will be escorting Coach Lanzi to our 45th reunion, God willing!

I was privileged to be in honors math with Mr. Marshall and eventually taught high school math myself for a year. I know he would be proud, and a bit surprised! I was blessed to have been on Coach Schroeter's Cross Country team for 2 years.

I was 30th out of 33 in running, but got better and eventually was 30th out of 30. (The other 3 all told me when I beat them, they knew it was time for them to quit the team. (I don't think they had a lot of confidence in my ability. Yes, they were quite insightful at the time!! )

God bless you all!
