Efthimios "Mike" Demopoulos was born in Ballos, Greece, on July 24, 1889. He immigrated to the United States in 1907, traveling to Portland, Oregon, to live with his cousin. He wanted to be more than a dishwasher, so he moved north and worked at various jobs including digging the original Anacortes sewer lines. He also worked at the Seattle Shipyards of Robert Moran, who built Rosario Resort, in Tacoma, and in Vancouver, B. C. In 1913 he returned to Anacortes to make his permanent home. He borrowed $14 and gathered junk and scrap in a wheelbarrow, later using a horse and wagon, and finally trucks. Anacortes Junk Co. was later re-named Marine Supply and Hardware and moved to 1009 2nd Street. H
