August 16, 1926 - January 31, 2013
Joseph F. DeMul, age 86, of Lewes, DE passed away suddenly on Thursday, January 31, 2013 at Beebe Medical Center in Lewes. He was born on August 16, 1926 in Brussels, Belgium, son of the late Jean and Yvonne (Smet) DeMul.

At the age of 14 Mr. DeMul traveled from Brussels to the United States and lived in Manhattan, NY with his late aunt and uncle, Dr. and Mrs. George Kleefeld. He graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in business from New York College and went on to work for Atlantic Mutual Insurance, then for Ogden Allied, and later as a Computer Consultant.

He retired to Bethany Beach, DE where he lived for ten years before moving to Cadbury at Lewes. He was a wonderful cook but enjoyed eating a great meal even more. At Cadbury Estates he was the first chair of the dining committee for whom he produced the E-Edition menu regularly. He loved fishing and was involved in the Delaware Bay Water Shed Project. He was also on the Delaware Council of Transportation.

Mr. DeMul is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Christina Kirk DeMul; a daughter: Gabrielle DeMul Allen and her husband Peter of Devon, PA; a brother: Pierre DeMul and his wife Ernie of St. Laurent, France; a sister: Cecile Savoye and her husband Jacques of Brussels, Belgium and numerous nieces and nephews.
