Jeanie and Tom Dergay

They have lived in Wilmington for over 20 years and truly enjoy opening their doors to the Wilmington community each and every morning.

Tom worked for Burlington Industries for 8 years before becoming part-owner of his own textile company for over 20 years. Tom now spends his time on a variety of business interests, though he still finds time to routinely provide a helping hand when and where needed. Tom and Jeanie have 3 children, 4 grandchildren, and, when not at work, love to relax out on the water enjoying what Wilmington has to offer.
