I recently decided to look Dorian up as I had not heard about or from him in quite a long time. I am saddened to hear of his passing!

Dorian (The Gentle Giant) you will be missed! Many thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones. Many memories of singing Boys 2 Men songs, playing basketball at the playground, hanging with you and your brother Joe. Great times that will not be forgotten. See you in Heaven my friend.

I recently just decided to search Dorians name as I hadn't heard from him in a long while ... and found that he passed away in 2016! He did record in my studio in 2001-2003 I have a few songs with his voice on it ... I could get the family that if they are interested [email protected] he had the most amazing voice !!

I'm so sorry for the loss of this young man. I knew him as one of my bus kids at our church and he rode the bus to encourage his younger cousins to go to church. I knew him as a sweet and thoughtful young man. My heart goes out to his former wife, Brenda and his sons and their families. Dorian was well loved.
He joins many loved ones that have gone on before him, and what a party is waiting there!

I went to Baker and Foss with Dorian. While I was not super close to him and haven't seen him in 20 years I was saddened to see him in the News Tribune this morning. He always seemed like a really decent guy in school and I feel bad his family lost him so young.
