Classical Hall of Famers Inducted



George Demers, Class of 1943  (Deceased)

Demers didn't have to go to war. He needed to go. Described as an "outstanding academic achiever" at LCHS and, according to Classical's famed Bill Joyce, a leader and influence "on the other boys," Sergeant Demers was destined. Exempt from service as an only child, according to family members, George begged his mother, Lillian, to sign his papers. The two-year varsity football and track team member was accepted on Aug. 9, 1943 to the Army Air Corps elite pilots' program based on high school performance. The program was cancelled, and George, trained as a gunner, arrived in Saipan, Japan, in March 1945. It is presumed that the Lynn Classical standout, described as a "clean, courageous competitor," died on May 24, 1945, on board the "Z Square 7," his B-29 bomber, over Tokyo. He died 11 weeks before the end of the war. He is remembered at City Hall and on a city memorial monument. His family also dedicated the corner of Western Avenue and Mall Street as the "George P. Demers Square."


 

Thank you Barbara Minchello and your mother, Charlotte Demers Fiasconaro, for honoring the memory of Sgt George P. Demers and the crew of  the B-29      Z Square 7 in Lynn, MA.                                   Frank Grube
