TALBOTT (WATE) - An East Tennessee man many knew as a psychic, but who referred to himself as "a sensitive," has passed away.

Bobby Drinnon died Monday at his home in Talbott. Drinnon battled cancer for two years before his passing. He was 61-years-old.

According to a post from family on his website, Drinnon was surrounded by family at the time of his passing.

Drinnon was recognized for his work counseling others, without any previous knowledge about them.

Drinnon worked in a factory in Morristown until 1977, when he began a professional counseling service.

He published a book in 1988 titled Petitioning Reality with Faith, now in its third printing. Drinnon identified as a Christian and attended Buffalo Trail Baptist Church as a child. A second book will be published, posthumously.  

A memorial will be held Sunday, March 23rd, at 3:00 p.m, at Angelos' at the Point Restaurant, on Douglas Lake, in Dandridge.  As the event will be held outdoors, the date is subject to change, should inclement weather be forecast.  

Gifts to the Bobby Drinnon Scholarship Fund, at All Saints Episcopal School, in Morristown, are requested in lieu of flowers. The fund will be used to provide scholarship aid to middle school students from families that might not otherwise be able to afford a private Christian education.
