[ARCHIVED] Veterans Day Memorial Square Dedication and Memorial Service 2023


Mayor Gary Christenson and Director of Veterans Services Kevin Jarvis invite the public to honor a true Malden hero of World War II. The dedication of the CPL William T. J. Dempsey Memorial Square will take place on Veterans’ Day in Linden Square at the Northeast Corner of Lynn Street and Beach Street (across from the Dunkin Donuts) this Saturday November 11, 2023 at 9 AM. Following the Memorial Square Dedication, the Malden American Legion Post 69 will hold a Veteran’s Day Memorial Service to honor all of Malden’s Veterans at 10:30 AM at Bell Rock Park in front of the American Legion Post 69, 75 Meridian Street, Malden, MA.

Bill Dempsey is a beloved father, grandfather, educator, and Veteran of WWII who was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for Heroism, Gallantry and Valor while fighting against the Germans to liberate Europe during WWII. He is a graduate of Boston College who spent nearly 40 years in the Malden Public Schools as both an educator and principal of the Linden School.

Every year Mr. Dempsey could be counted on to lead his fellow veterans at Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day ceremonies especially when he served as the Commander of the American Legion! Throughout his life Bill Dempsey has honored his fallen comrades by decorating their graves in all our cemeteries throughout Malden. He is true inspiration and a “true Greatest Generation WWII hero” who has served our city and country, the American Legion and the Kiwanis Club with pride and distinction.
