Virginia Beach ~ With Heavy Hearts we share the passing of John Michael, Dorsey, Jr. 54yrs old. On March 6, 2020. John worked as a Longshoreman for (ILA) for the last 30yrs. John was a very generous, witty, and dedicated man to all he loved. John had a huge passion of collecting Antiques, Coin, Silver, Kiss, and Redskins collectibles to even an elaborate knife collection. John would even give sentimental gifts he knew others would love such as Snoopy items, Roosters, and even aides to help a dedicated Hairdresser to make the job easier and much, much, more. John we truly believed was the biggest advocate for Thrift Stores and the treasures they hold. John’s love was like no other for his beloved animals that would bring a smile to him each day after work. John also had a way of showing kids his unconditional Love; which we all know led to him adopting many children which truly love and adored him. A connoisseur of the finest cuisines, John had a love of cooking a skill he took right from his mother, John was known to be an amazing cook in the Kitchen, but was called Grill Master when he cooked outside. John enjoyed life to the fullest, but there was somethings he found most enjoyable and that was Fishing and the weekends with family down in Columbia, NC. For all who knew John, I sure would agree; God had truly blessed our lives with an Angel who truly earned his Wings and left a forever impression of Love in our Hearts.
John is survived by his parents; Virginia and John M. Dorsey, Sr., his wife; Sherry Dorsey, sister; Suzanne Doxey all of VA Beach, brother; Jason (Angie) Dorsey of Texas.
