Richard Hugh Dorman, age 78, passed from this life on Saturday, January 11, 2020, at his home on the family farm. He was born June 2, 1941 at the Beaver Memorial Hospital. Richard graduated from Turpin High School in 1959 and from Panhandle State University in 1966.
While attending college, Richard continued to farm and ranch with his parents until their deaths in 1985-86. He took over the family farm. His passion for his farm and love of his cattle continued over his entire career. During his adult life, Richard served on the Perryton Equity Board and other Beaver County Organizations that supported his ideas and values in farming.
On August 8, 1970 Richard married Neva Maria Bass at the First Baptist Church at Beaver, Oklahoma. It was at the time he gave his life to Christ and was baptized at the Beaver Baptist Church. After he and Neva were married, they became members of the Turpin Baptist Church, where he enjoyed serving on various church committees. Richard enjoyed singing, in fact many of the songs to be sung at his funeral service were some of his favorite solos.
He is survived by his wife, Neva, their two sons Richie and Chris Dorman, two nephews Mark (Bonnie) Dorman and Bill Dorman, plus several cousins and a host of friends.
Richard was preceded in death by his parents Hugh and Virginia (Grimwood) Dorman; father and mother-in law Homer and Florence Bass; and brother John (Wilma) Dorman.
