Better known to all as "Dempsey" as he was nicknamed after Jack Dempsey. Dempsey was raised on Bobbitt Bench. He worked in the woods as a timber faller while maintaining a small ranch which provided the hay for the cow or two that were raised there.

Dempsey married Violet Beck which Steven and Vickie were born of; this marriage ended in divorce. He married Maxine J McConkey on March 11, 1954. This marriage brought the apple of his eye Suzan McConkey who was Daddy's shadow. They were married until his death. He was survived by several grandchildren.

The coffee was always on and the door was always open to family and friends.

Papa, you passed away far to young. You are like the butterfly who is there for a fleeting moment, but leaves beautiful memories. Will always remember you and miss you greatly.
