Raymond Dorsey Jr.

Raymond Bruce Dorsey Jr., age 68 of Maryville, passed away Tuesday, March 29, 2022, at Blount Memorial Hospital.  Proceeded in death by parents, Raymond Dorsey Sr; Helen Gertrude Sherwood Dorsey Harris (Hoyit); Gary Lynn Dorsey.  Survivors include wife, Pamela Cooper Dorsey; son Jeffrey Dorsey; Amy Blankenship (Bo); grandchildren Riley Dorsey; Tyler Blankenship all of Maryville.  Many special friends, nieces and nephews.   

Despite his sickness, Raymond fought a good fight for 7 years.  He was an inspiration to many.  He was ready to meet Jesus and be done with all the suffering.  He was a firefighter for 20 plus years and farmed most of his life.  He could often be found in the farm shop working on equipment.  Raymond was a kind, compassionate and generous man.  He was always willing to lend a helping hand when someone was in need- regardless of what the circumstance might be.  Camping was the love of him and Pam’s life- they met many friends across the entire United States.   

Funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 9th, 2022, at Alcoa-Maryville Church of God with Reverend Paul Dyar officiating.  Receiving of friends will be from 2:00 to 3:00 with service held immediately afterwards.  Refreshments will be served for family and friends after service.
