Burton L. Dempsey


Burton L. Dempsey (born November 8, 1918), passed away March 30, 2012.  Devoted husband of Joanne (deceased) and father of Dennis and Pamela.

Burt served in WWII and raised his family in the Seattle area after the war.  He used his GI Bill to become an airline pilot but younger, returning Korean War pilots were preferred by the airlines.  He was a self employed home builder and excavating contractor until his retirement in 1980.

He and Joanne enjoyed boating in the San Juans and traveling throughout the western states and Canada with friends during their retirement years.

There will be a private family memorial for Burton.  Remembrances may be made in his name to Washington Animal Rescue.
