    I am so very sorry for your lose. I new Dormin from Mac’s Bar, he used to come in everyday and hang out with the guys. He always had a smile on his face and the cutest laugh. He is going to be missed dearly. I personally will never forget him, he was so very kind and thoughtful.

    Middle of December, and I just found out Dorman passed. I used to work with Dorman in Whitewater Wi. Dorman was a great co-worker and a great friend. We used to visit him later at his places in the UP. I will miss Dorman a great deal and hope he is in a better place.
