During World War II, Joseph T. Dembia worked in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where he was regularly relied on for his problem-solving abilities, his family said. It was there that he met his future wife, Connie DePaola. They were married on Nov. 24, 1946. She survives Mr. Dembia, who died at home in Ramsey, N.J., on Feb. 26, as do their three children, Lorraine Tanner of Seymour, Conn., Robert Dembia of Roslyn, and Denise Higgins of West Chesterfield, N.H. Mr. Dembia, a summer resident of Sayre’s Path in Wainscott, was 93.
