Manchin Statement on the Passing of West Virginian Nicholas "Corky" DeMarco

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today issued a statement on the passing of Nicholas “Corky” DeMarco, the executive director of the West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association.

“Gayle and I were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Corky DeMarco, a lifelong West Virginian. Corky was a leader in our state working in both public service and business, and he will be dearly missed.

“Corky was proud to be a West Virginian, and when asked about the places he had lived once responded, ‘Charleston, Charleston, Charleston.’ Gayle and I join all West Virginians in keeping Mr. DeMarco’s entire family in our hearts and prayers during this difficult time.”
