Arvin Milton Dorman, Sr.


Arvin Milton Dorman, Sr., 44, of Alberene gained his heavenly wings on May 31, 2022.

He was born on April 19, 1978, son of the late Olion I. Dorman Sr. and the late Paula Dorman. In addition to his biological parents, he is preceded in death by a brother John W. Dorman, Grandparents Frank S. and June Dorman and Bill Hudson.

He is survived by his wife, Kathy Dorman of Alberene; his parents, Laura and Dwaine Thacker of Alberene; 3 children, Johnathan Dorman, Arvin M Dorman Jr., and Elizabeth Dorman; 4 stepchildren, Carmen Hall (Sloan), Chad Hall, Candice Dorman, Stacey Martin (Casey); Brothers, Olion I. Dorman, Jr. (Diana) and Frank S Dorman II (Brittany); Sisters,  Betty Folsom (Scott), Sissy Moon (Junior), Patricia Gibson, Tammy Young (Mike), Susan Thacker and Buffy Deane (Calvin);  In-Laws,  Wayne and Liz Beddow;  12 grandchildren, 25 nieces and nephews; special friends, Ernie and Julia Moore, Donna Moore, Beth Manning; his uncles, aunts and a host of cousins and friends.

Arvin was known to be a jack of all trades and a master of none, HAHA. If he put his mind to it and stayed focused, there was nothing he couldn’t complete with his hands. When Arvin was straight, there was nothing he wouldn’t help anyone with. Arvin is loved by many and it’s until we see each other again when your mind and body are healthy.

As a family we would like to remind anyone reading this, if you have a mental health and/or drug addiction to reach out and/or go seek treatment. There is always someone that will lend a hand to make you well. We need you here with us. Own you have a problem and get the help you need. We love you all.

A celebration of Arvin’s Life on Earth will be held at the Home Place on Bungletown Road, Saturday June 18, 2022  starting at 2pm.

Arrangements by Wells/Sheffield Funeral Chapel of Lovingston, VA (434-263-4097).
