Gary Lynn Dorman passed away Thursday, May 7,2020 after a brief illness at his home in Delhi with his family by his side.
Gary was a 1970 graduate of Rayville High School. He was a longtime electrical inspector who was highly respected and sought after in his field. At the time of his death Gary was working in the Gulf for MMR, a Baton Rouge electrical instrumentation company dealing with oil and gas.
One of Gary’s young co-workers referred to him as the “pony-tailed electrical guru of the Gulf” in a text to Gary’s wife Treba when he heard that his boss had died. Dorman was in great demand by Shell and Chevron engineers over the years as they battled over getting him and his expertise on their projects.

Gary is preceded in death by his Father, Shelly Dorman of Rayville; brother, Phillip Gorden Dorman.

Survivors include his Mother, Evelyn Killen Dorman of Rayville; wife, Treba Irby Dorman of Delhi; two sons, Ebon Daniel Dorman of Rayville and Shelly Osco Dorman and wife Jessika of Metairie; two grandsons, Jake Dorman and Wiley Dorman; one brother, Wendel Dorman of Farmerville; three sisters, Sheila Dorman Hawkins and husband Joe of Molina, Fl, Darla Dorman Odom Monroe and husband Bruce of Delhi and Tammy Dorman of Rayville.

Gary was a man of few words...he loved his family and friends...and he loved his electrical work in the oil field, whether on land or in the Gulf. He will be greatly missed by those who loved him and those he mentored down through the years.
Arrangements were entrusted to Griffin Funeral Home of West Monroe.

Just one of my earliest memories of Gary: The first car I ever drove was Uncle Gary's. I think I was probably about 5 or so, so maybe '75 or '76. Sat in Gary's lap because I couldn't reach the pedals. Seems like it might've been a yellow Pinto? It was at Grandpa and Granma Dorman's house out on Highway 80, just outside Rayville. I just remember steering and driving around and Gary constantly saying "Don't run over Grandpa's trees. Don't run over Grandpa's trees", which had been newly planted in the front yard there.

Hey lovely lady ,I'm so sorry to hear about your loss ,I have Mad respect for Gary and will always remember the time when no one would give me a chance for a good job and a better life ,and yet , Mr. Dorman gave me that chance ,it was the one job that I truly loved and excelled in...He taught me a lot and my past ,caught up with me,when the twic card was enforced....
I spent years trying to work my way back to that job,in order to try to get to were he was, (which I never could have done without his help,he was an electrical Guru) in the electrical field...But God had other plans for is what it is....
Anyway dear lady ,I love y'all and always will...
I love you Treba Dorman...RIP Mr. Gary Dorman
