While I didn't know Dwayne, I knew his Dad and grandparents a lonnnng time ago when my family ran Gillispie Hardware in Sadieville. It always saddens me to learn of the passing of another Gillispie/Gillespie/Gillaspie in Scott County. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. Mike Gillespie, Minister, now living in Corydon, Indiana.
