    Dear Mrs. Demong and Family,

    On behalf of myself and all of the members of the Criminal Defence Lawyers Association of Calgary (CDLA), I would like to pass on our deepest sympathy to you and your family at this difficult time.

    Judge Demong was a wonderful jurist who had an endless supply of common sense and a great compassion for those less fortunate. On a personal level, he was extremely kind to me. I will never forget the time when Tony, in his quiet way, consoled and reassured me when my father, and his colleague (Judge Robert Dinkel), fell ill from a stroke. I am comforted in knowing that my Dad and Judge Demong are now together sharing countless stories of their days in Calgary Provincial Court. Judge Demong was very much loved and respected by all who appeared before him and worked with him at the Courthouse.

    With the greatest of sympathy,
    Mike Dinkel & The CDLA

  3. Dear Mrs. Demong and Family,
    I am saddened, and wish to extend my deepest sympathies for Judge Demong’s passing. As a defence lawyer I can assure you that Judge Demong made many difficult criminal proceedings far more bearable for all concerned. Many of the proceedings involved very unpleasant things for all concerned. He allowed both criminal defence and Crown to get through these matters with a sense that, for our part, all ended well. I miss him, and I am sorry to hear of his passing.
