Jeffrey Dortman, 60, of Duryea, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, at his home. He was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, on February 10, 1962 and was the son of the late William Dortman and Alice Renn Giese.
Jeff attended grade school in Sheboygan, WI and graduated from Mesa High School, Mesa, Arizona.
Jeffrey lived a rich, interesting, and fulfilling life.
He was a concert photographer, worked as a graphic designer, and was currently working as a CDL driver for Golden Technologies, Old Forge. For many years, he worked as a Hank Williams "lookalike" for Double Takes Entertainment in Arizona. He loved time spent on his Harley Davidson and time in his yard and garden and was an avid HAM Radio operator.
Jeffrey would help anyone in need. He was truly a renaissance man and humanitarian with a devotion to animal and bird rescues.
Few can claim the varied and colorfully diverse experiences that Jeffrey had throughout his lifetime. His memory lives on as an inspiration to us all.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his father-in-law and mother-in-law, James and Jean Mollica, and his brother-in-law Jimmy Mollica.
Jeffrey is survived by his loving wife of 21 years, Patricia Mollica Dortman, his brother Billy Dortman, of Sheboygan, WI., his sister Julie Dortman Dewey and her husband Keith, of Gilbert, AZ., brother-in-law John Mollica and his wife Deborah, of CT and Andrew Mollica and his wife Jeanette, of NJ. Also surviving are several nieces and nephews and very close friends we would like to mention, Dr. Alyce Zura, the Gad Family from the Old Forge Animal Hospital, John Pliska and Connie Gill, Kanika Rahman and Keith Ivy, Danny Bonavina and all of his fellow CDL Driving friends.
Private funeral services will be held at the convenience of the family.
