Dempsey Young Memorial Fund

In our earlier post about the untimely passing of Dempsey Young, I made reference to a fund being established for the benefit of his family. That fund is now in place, and contributions can be sent to:

Dempsey Young Memorial Fund
c/o Franklin Community Bank
400 Old Franklin Turnpike, Suite 100
Rocky Mount, Virginia 24151

Dempsey is survived by his wife Lynette, daughters Stephanie and Demetra living at home, and son Christopher (USAF), stationed in Qatar. The memorial fund is to assist Lynette and the children, particularly with education expenses.

He also leaves 3 brothers, Steve, Randy and Scott all of Wirtz, VA and several extended family members. His band family consists of Allen Mills, business partner for over 33 years, Scottie Sparks and Ronald Smith.

Condolences can be sent to:

Lynette Young
3467 Bonbrook Mill Road
Boones Mill, VA 24065

We will post about funeral arrangements as soon as we receive the information, hopefully later this afternoon.
