A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021, at Whitehall Methodist Church for Bobby “Brice” Dempsey, 84, of McCool, who died on Thursday, Sept. 9, 2021, at his residence surrounded by his loving family. The Rev. Mike Dowd will officiate.
Brice was born on March 7, 1937, in Winston County, the youngest of nine children born to William Alvin and Ollie Scott Dempsey. He had numerous jobs over the years, but the one he was best known for was being the barber in Weir for approximately 40 years. He also worked at U.S. Motors in Philadelphia, Miss., and drove a school bus for the Louisville School District. Brice loved his grandchildren, hunting with his bird dogs and playing his Gibson guitar, while singing country and gospel music, but what he loved most of all was to just plain talk. Rest in peace until we meet again.
His daughter, Melissa Dempsey; his parents; sisters, Lena Mae Horton, Lucille Alexander, Janie Goodin, Bernice Alexander and Earline McCauley, and brothers, Wesley Dempsey, Curtis Dempsey and William Dempsey, preceded Brice in death.
Survivors include, his loving wife of 38 years, Nancy Dempsey of McCool; stepdaughters, Tammy (David) Maycock of Louisville and Tanya (Beau) Taylor of Steens; grandsons, Matthew (Noell) Maycock, Russ Taylor, Taylor Maycock, Seth Smith and Logan Vanderveen; granddaughter, Laken (Justin) Keller; eight great grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.
