Jan. 30, 1941 — Feb. 28, 2019

Glenn Murray Dorsey peacefully passed away in Post Falls, Idaho, on Feb. 28, 2019, at the age of 78 years.

He was born in Omaha, Neb., on Jan. 30, 1941.

Glenn is predeceased by Jeanne Ann Hass Pierce, his loving wife of 53 years and parents, Glenn and Margaret Dorsey.

He is lovingly remembered by son Jason Dorsey of Spokane, Wash., and survived by sister Jo Ann in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and nephew David in Miami, Fla.

He graduated from Nebraska and played football for the Cornhuskers. He went back to college in 1989, to Gonzaga University in Spokane and graduated with a master’s degree in accounting in 1991.

He was a great father, devoted husband and a loyal friend who was there when needed. He enjoyed hunting and fishing for recreation. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the National Rifle Association — a group Glenn supported avidly.
