Danny (Dan) Harold Dorman, age 70, passed from this life Thursday, December 9, 2021, at his home in Prairie Grove, Ark. He was born December 20, 1950, in Monahans, Texas, a son of the late Oscar Levi Dorman and Doris Lee (McLearen) Dorman.
With a passion for farming, Danny earned his bachelors degree in Animal Science from the University of Arkansas and eventually farmed full time for over 25 years. Even after pursuing other career paths, such as banking and real estate, he always loved returning to the hay field and cattle.
Marked by a lifetime of trusting God in all things, Dan walked through life’s trials and joys with a confidence in our heavenly Father’s goodness and faithfulness. Danny never met a stranger. He loved everyone he met with a generous spirit. Convinced of God’s plan, he effortlessly shared the Good News with all. His greatest joy was his family, in whom he was extremely proud and through whom he has left his most lasting legacy.
Dan was a faithful member of Christian Life Cathedral, where he served on the Executive Board.
