Dempsey had heart problems that caused him great pain, he was in and out of the hospital where the doctors did their best each time to save him. He was put on a machine in the hospital that would pump his blood through his body while the doctors and our family prayed his heart would get strong enough to pump on its own so he could go home. He had congestive heart failure. Sadly his heart was too weak, they eventually sent him home with a pump in a backpack with tubes and wires going into him, to keep his heart pumping.
Through all of this Dempsey kept a good positive outlook and HOPED he would someday make it onto the heart transplant list. He had a job that he loved and worked at for five years, where he made many friends. Very few people knew his true struggle because he was tough as nails and didn’t allow his pain to show. He never gave up, unfortunately his heart did and he passed away.
Dempsey spent months and hours in the hospital, his medical bills are more than our family can manage. His finances are drained. Because he has been sick for so long, he hasn’t kept up on his house repairs or his yard, everything is dead. No grass, very few trees are left. He just didn’t have the energy to deal with it. When he did have energy, he chose to spend it outdoors at the dunes with his friends and family.
His young kids are left to pick up the pieces. He was their rock and now he is gone.
If anyone out there can help these four kids financially, it would be extremely appreciated. I don’t know how they will survive otherwise.
Thank you for for sharing your time with me, reading about my big brother Dempsey who we shall all miss terribly, especially his youngest child who will not remember him when he grows up.
Please be generous and give to these children left behind, they will need financial assistance ASAP. They don’t even have enough money to pay for the funeral. Everything in his estate will have to go through probate which can take over a year to get to.
The 3 oldest kids mother is not able to help financially or physically and has medical issues of her own. Dempsey was sole provider. Ronins mother is a single parent so she will need help without Dempsey’s child support. Their cobra insurance ends in three months.
