It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Brother Don Graham Dempsey ’47, an alumnus who passed away in November. Even though he is no longer with us, he will remain forever in the hearts and minds of his friends, family and PDT Brothers.

His wife, Faye Dempsey, wrote, “Don died on Friday, November 20, 2015, at 7:50 p.m. at Hospice House in Greenville after having been at Vidant Hospital since the previous Saturday with pneumonia. He was such a dear, sweet person—so hard to let go.

We had his funeral on Monday, November 23, at Jarvis Memorial United Methodist Church.

We celebrated Don's 90th birthday with a BIG surprise party (over 150) at Greenville Country Club on September 26, although his actual birthday was on October 3. It was absolutely wonderful, and he had such a good time, saying, "It was the best party I've ever attended; I knew everybody there!"
