Robert Peter Dempsey

Robert Peter Dempsey, age 76, of Orlando, FL passed away Saturday, October 27th, 2012, at his home in Orlando.  Born in Boston, MA, Bob was the son of the late Josephine (Sullivan) and James Brenden Dempsey.   Bob enjoyed a lengthy and successful career in radio, television, marketing, and advertising, including general management positions at radio stations in Providence, RI, and Orlando, Miami, and Jacksonville, FL, and in sales management for a network affiliated TV station in Providence.  He was also the marketing director for the syndicated radio program “An American Idea” which was named the country’s “Best Syndicated Daily Radio Program.”

 Bob became known and respected nationwide for his work as an Account Executive with Orlando’s DeFalco advertising agency, overseeing millions of dollars in investments in radio, television, and print advertising on behalf of many of the nation’s most successful car dealerships.  A lifelong sports fan, he returned to radio late in his career, winning “Salesman of the Year” honors for his performance for Clear Channel’s sports station in Orlando, and subsequently with Genesis Communications in Orlando as well.  More recently, he founded Bob Dempsey Advertising, developing and executing marketing and advertising campaigns for businesses throughout Central Florida.

Bob infused all of his projects – indeed, all of his life -- with enthusiasm, energy, and creativity, and he will be missed not only by family and friends, but also by his associates, his clients, and all who have been touched by him.  He was a proud veteran of the U.S. Air Force and a member of Holy Family Catholic Church in Orlando.

Robert is predeceased by daughter Katie Dempsey (1995) and leaves to cherish his memory wife Marie Frances (Snow) Dempsey of Orlando; four daughters, Kathleen (Kane) Dempsey, of Dallas, TX;  Patricia (John) Schwering, of Alexandria, VA; Anne Marie (Don) Dempsey, of Orlando, FL;  Roberta (Brian) Fields, of Orlando;  sister, Josephine Magnan, of Hartford, CT;  and brother, John Dempsey, of New Hampshire.

The family will be receiving friends at Dobbs Funeral Home on Thursday, November 1st, 2012 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Holy Family Catholic Church, Orlando, FL, at 11:00 am on Friday, November 2nd.   In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made in Bob's name to VITAS Innovative Hospice Care, 2201 Lucien Way, Maitland FL 32751.

I was saddened to read of your Dad's passing and wanted to express my condolences to you and your family.Our paths crossed in the 1970s when he ran Susquehanna Broadcasting's WKIS and I was with The Outlet Company's WDBO AM/FM. He was a superb leader and a fierce competitor, a genuine asset to Orlando broadcasting community. I am sorry for your loss.
