Fred Dempsey, 72, a resident of the Leigh's Chapel Community

OBIT01MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KY - Fred Dempsey, 72, a resident of the Leigh's Chapel Community, passed away on June 18, 2013. He was surrounded by family and friends his last days, and transitioned to the next life with grace and dignity.

We will be celebrating his life and passion for nature with an outdoor memorial and burial with Military honors at Leigh's Chapel Church (120 North Leigh's Chapel Lane, Greenville, KY) on Thursday June 20, 2013 at 1100AM. Officiating the celebration of life are Reverends John Galyen and Roger Wright. Gary’s Funeral Home Greenville is in charge of arrangements.

Fred is an Air Force veteran, serving proudly from 1960-1964. He worked many years supporting his family as a coal mine heavy equipment operator, then as a tool dresser at Texas Gas Transmission Corporation, from where he retired. However, with any chance Fred would state that his greatest accomplishment is his family...

Fred was born in Muhlenberg County on November 5, 1940, to Marvin Kenneth Dempsey and lola Lucille Moore Dempsey, both deceased. He has three cherished siblings, Donald Moore Dempsey (Betty Dempsey), Stephen Riley Dempsey (deceased), and Marcia Jane Dempsey Stutts (Paul Stutts). Fred's siblings and extended family have gifted him many adored nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Fred dedicated his life to his survivors. He was devoted without limitation to his wife and best friend of 40 glorious years, Martha Marie Pearson Dempsey. Together they loved and nurtured three children: Melanie Marie Dempsey Glover (James Glover), Lincoln Frederick Dempsey, and Zane Kendrick Dempsey. Their love for family has grown in their two grandchildren, James Pierce Glover and Ella Marie Glover.
Fred's love for family extended beyond blood, and he considered his church, community, boy scout, and campground children and friends his family as well. Never to be forgotten or considered any less is his love for his canine companion, Katie, who has protected and loved him in return for almost 12 years.

We thank our many friends, family, and health care providers who have shared Fred's unlimited laughter throughout his joyful life. Your compassion, support, and love embody his boundless spirit. Expressions of love can be made in the form of contributions to The Old Jackson Cemetery, 5661 State Route 1163 Greenville, 42345.
