Granville Rogers Dorey

July 30, 1937 ~ January 13, 2013

Roger lived in Hoquiam, WA, until 7th Grade, when his family relocated to Eugene, OR. After proudly serving in the Marine Corp. he focused advancing his career at Boeing until an opportunity presented itself at Eldec Corp. It was there he began to realize his passion for growing small companies. After some time, he was invited to help with a start-up company called Advanced Technology Labs, soon to be a world leader in ultrasound technology. Applied Microsystems Corp., Second Source and then Emerald Technology were his challenges and successes.

He developed Prostate Cancer in 1991. He decided life could be short and he needed a change of pace. It was a good decision. Upon retiring, he and Rita went full-time motor homing for 17 years.

He is survived by his wife, 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.
