Pat was always a classy guy to a news editor trying to find his way in Crown Point of the early 1980s. He kept a secret and he was always willing to explain the intricacies of city government without talking down to you. I hope his constituents knew how well he fought for them as the first Democrat in a city administration going back 150 years. He never lost his passion for the city. Never lost his smile. Never lost his enthusiasm. He was a CP original in so many ways.

Chris, Tina and the DeMure Family, Shannon and I send our thoughts and prayers your way. I remember meeting Mr. DeMure when Chris and I were promoted to Major in Washington, D.C. - he was a proud father and I could tell that the DeMure family is close. Our deepest condolences, Josh and Shannon Richardson

As my City Councilman, Pat welcomed me to the neighborhood back in 1991. We became dear friends as he served as CP's first Recycling Director. Pat was the smartest person I've ever met. But even his brilliance was overshadowed by his kind heart and sense of humor. Pat was truly one of kind. I'm saddened knowing that none of us will ever meet anyone like him again. My prayers go out to his beloved Marsha, Jennifer, The General and the entire DeMure family. May God bless and comfort you at this difficult time.
