I didn't know Mr. Dormer but saw him many times at the Manchester Historical Society tours. He was always pleasant and helpful and I would like his family to know that, as a resident of Manchester, I appreciate his work for the Society and for the Manchester community. He was obviously a very generous man. We have all benefited enormously from his work for Manchester.
One of the kindest gentlemen I'd ever met in my years at the Research Center. It was a pleasure to know him. My condolences to John's family and friends.
Rest In Peace my Dear friend You will be missed until we meet again
John was a prince of a man in every way. I am sad to hear of his passing. We have lost a very special and loving man. May he Rest in Peace in the arms of our Lord and sing with the angels
My Dearest John....I am not saying goodbye to you, I am cherishing all the good memories. You are loved and deeply missed.
Will always hold you warm smile in my heart. My thoughts and prayers go out for your family,so blessed to have known you my friend.
I am a better person for having known such a sweet, kind man. My prayers are with his family and other friends.
God speed to a good and faithful servant!! We offer our sincere sympathy and condolences to the family of John, a wonderful man and a dear friend.
