Also preceding him in death is one sister:  Brenda Nanney Fergie; one brother:  Robert “Dee” Nanney; and his first-born son:  Joshua Nanney.

Cayce leaves behind his wife of 42 years:  Kim Nanney of Bells, TN; one daughter:  Michele Nanney of Gadsden, TN and her two children:  Camille and Nicholas Ivie; two sons:  Drew Nanney and Caleb Nanney of Bells, TN; one brother:  Donald Nanney (Joyce) of Bells, TN; He also leaves a host of extended family and friends, his horse “Jack”, his mini horses, and most recently his constant companion, his puppy “Little Bit”. Also, the special “Grandchildren of our hearts” Riley and Reese Turner.
