Quinten Lawrence Dorman, Sr., 80, beloved husband and father, went home to be with our heavenly father after a courageous battle. By his side without end was his strength and love, Connie L. (Mabus) Dorman. His passing breaks a marital union of 63 years.
Quinten, or Quint, as many knew him, gave his heart, mind, and soul to the Lord. He knew that this world was just a small gift compared to the promise of God’s Heavenly Kingdom.
He was born November 26, 1942, in Lewisburg, a son of the late Daniel L. and Martha M. (Hassenplug) Dorman. Quinten enjoyed the blessings of one brother, Rev. Henry F. Dorman and his wife Linda; one sister, Linda Dorman Shade and her husband Edward; and brother-in-law, Charles Mabus, Jr. and his wife Kay.
Quinten attended Mifflinburg Area High School and transitioned to a blue collar life of different vocations. His most memorable tenure was over 30 years with those salty dogs at ACF Industries, Milton. He often commented about the heat and the cold during the different seasons while working there but it never deterred him from providing for his family. Quinten retired from ACF in 1995, and moved to a serene retreat at the foot of Jack’s Mountain for the next 28 years.
He was an avid outdoorsman who loved God’s great outdoors. Quint loved to hunt and fish and if he wasn’t doing it, he was talking about it. He loved to watch westerns, war movies, college and professional football, and the outdoor channel.
Quint’s most passionate devotion was given to his wife and family. God blessed him with 11 children; 7 daughters, Lorraine Keister and husband Kelly, Jane Smith and husband Chuck, Susan Lamoureaux and husband Steven, Sr., Danielle Dorman, Alisha Dorman, Sabrina Dorman and her fiancé Donald Heilig, Jr., and Grace Dorman; 4 sons, Quinten “Butch” Dorman, Jr., Michael Dorman, Tyriq Dorman and partner McKenzie Bruder, and Benjamin Dorman and partner Ryeleah Ulrich; 16 grandchildren, Jenifer Page and her husband Jeff, Connie Rivera-Lezama, Bethany Barrera and her husband John “Pito”, Jillian Baker, Hannah Smith and her fiancé Austin Krahel, Steven Lamoureaux, Jr. and his wife Tina, Christopher Lamoureaux and his wife Laura, Haley Herman, Brianna Lemon, Whitney Dorman and her fiancé Austin Raker, Hailee Kizis and her fiancé Abraham Taylor, Hayden Rippon, Ava Rippon, Ny’iisha Dorman-Bachmiller, Bronx Dorman-Bachmiller, and Christopher Heilig; Blessings continued with 25 great grandchildren; a close family friend Keyondra Lohr; many nieces and nephews; and the special members of the Hospice of Evangelical team.
He was an active member of the Christ Community Church of Glen Iron for many years, where he taught Sunday Bible School and provided his skills as a caretaker of the Lord’s house.
Quinten had an undying faith in God which he empowered everyday by reading his Bible that he kept at the kitchen table. He also knew the Lord has a sense of humor because he could tell a fishing tale with the best of the best.
He loved to heckle and tease but inside that gruff exterior was a big teddy bear. Quint always believed in the good in people and gave of himself to help others. Even in his waning days his care and concern were focused on his family…a lesson he learned from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Ultimately, he knew this was not the end but a new beginning. If you wish to honor his memory, please be an ambassador for Christ by sharing Faith, Hope, and Love.
In keeping with Quinten’s wishes, memorial services will be private at the convenience of his family and his trusted spiritual advisors, Rev. Henry Dorman, Pastor Brent Susan, and Rev. Richard VonNeida.
