Dorman married Doris J. Webb on Dec. 29, 1953, in St. Clair Shores. He felt called to return to the Northern Michigan he loved in 1957 and they have resided here since. He spent most of his working years at Manthei Veneer Mill and the McLaughlin Co., with a brief stint of independent trucking.
Football and hunting were his interests beyond his family.
Dorman ministered in music that blessed many over the years at the Horton Bay United Methodist Church, where he was a member, and at monthly singspirations held in many churches in the area during the 1970s.
