After decades breathing life into patients and into local history, Dr. Frank J. DeMaio Jr. now is ready for his own chapter to be written into the ongoing story of Vineland. DeMaio, who practiced medicine here for more than half a century, died Wednesday night at the age of 90 after what the family said was a short illness.
