Obituary for Glen Dorris, Jr.

The Good Lord called Glen Dorris, Jr., age 71 of Greenbrier, formerly of Nashville, home on Sunday, August 29, 2021 to be with his Mom, Dorothy Kelso Dorris; his Dad, Glen Dorris, Sr.; and his brother, Gary Dorris, all of whom preceded him in death.

He wasn’t all work though. He loved fishing, camping, sports, his koi pond, bird watching, growing wildflowers, driving his tractor, and reading.

Glen will be missed not only by his wife of 33 years, Linda Bowie Dorris of Greenbrier, by his two daughters, Olivia (Scott Smith) Dorris and Mende (Jason) Pattee, both of Nashville.
