I had the pleasure of visiting with Dorrance when I worked at the Grandview Milkhouse in the early 2000's. He had a great sense of humor and was a religious man. You have my condolences.

Dorrance was a pleasure to get to know and was a very helpful friend to our father, Wm. (Bill) Mehrl, also a resident there. He will be sorely missed!
