The family would like to give special thanks to Angela Hospice for their wonderful care for Dennis and our family in his last days.
Dennis age 82, passed away on September 2, 2021 surrounded by his family.
Dennis was born in Detroit to Archie and Elsie Dorman. He grew up working on farms in the Deckerville and Snover area. He loved farming and growing many things. In high school, Dennis won the state title for the 440 yard dash as well as many other track records.

Dennis will forever be remembered for his love of family, his beautiful flower and vegetable gardens, and being a skilled wood carver. He was also skilled at building and repairing things and was always willing to help his friends and family. He loved spending time hunting and fishing with his sons, grandsons, brother and his step-son Chris. He also had a special relationship with his brother Ed and sister-in-law Bonnie and they enjoyed many vacations together.
