Joseph W. “Beansy” Demczyk, Jr., noted second generation businessman and entrepreneur of West Newton, died peacefully, surrounded by his loving wife, Jaye Anne Fedrow Demczyk and family, on Thursday, July 11, 2019.  Joe was the owner/operator of Demczyk Distributing.  In addition he was also the proprietor of Demczyk Service and Demczyk Trucking.  Joe was a venerable fixture of the West Newton Business Community for fifty years.  Born on July 6, 1947, Joe spent his entire life as a citizen and businessman of West Newton.  He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Jaye Ann; his daughter-in-law, Stacie Abbott; his grandsons, Ross and Ryan Abbott; his sister, Joanne (Sam) Stanto; nieces and nephews, Sydney Stanto (Lam) Nguyen, Daniel S.
