Dorman graduated from Lamar High School, attended The University of Texas and was a boxing heavy-weight representative in the US Army. He is an artist and native Houstonian.
Dorman has been written about in the Texas Monthly (www.dormandavid.com/texasmonthlyarticle.com). he was also featured in The New York Times (www.nytimes.com/1989/12/10/magazine/lone-star-fakes.html) and many books such as "Eye Witness to Alamo". Dorman was always ready for adventure. With a machete in his four wheel drive truck and a camera around his neck. He loved hunting for treasures and artifacts around Houston from antiques to beautiful views on the gulf coast. He always brought paper and something to draw with to a party and his eyes lit up when he explains the history of any treasure he has found. Dorman is filled with excitement and knowledge and his artwork reflects the love he has for life and people.

He is survived by his children: daughter Cadence Green and husband David Green; Gray Geiselman and wife Alison Geiselman; Michelle Hall and husband Alan Hall; Thaddeus David, Mac David and grandchildren: Channing, Ireland, Alexander, Bailey, Jonah, Gray, Penn and Ashley.
