    Dave Dohrmann

    It saddens me to post this, but Dave Dohrmann passed away yesterday, Sunday April 4th.
    I considerd Dave a very close friend for many years as did many of you.

    His brother truely appreciates all the well wishes and concern for Dave over the last several months.

    I have no information regarding Dave's business, Tru-Kote or any of it's products.

    I'm very sad to hear of his passing. I have a couple of his products and will think of him and his contributions to Benchrest whenever I use them. He won't be forgotten.

    One for Dave

    So it's Easter Sunday in Heaven,the pearly gates which normally close up for the day at 5:00 are open an extra hour 'cause it's Easter and Saint Peter is in a pretty laid back mood. Things have been kinda slow with only a few missionaries and nuns showing up with the proper credentials to gain instant access.Quite a few pretty good folks have been turned away 'cause the bad stuff outweighed the good stuff.
    So now it's 6:01 and the gates start to squeak closed for the day. Saint Peter notices some skinny little guy kinda hanging around,not really trying to get in but in no hurry to leave either. He calls him out of the shadows and looks at his name tag." Dohrmann,why do you deserve to enter Heaven on this day" says St Peter in a booming voice." Well I'm not really shure,I ahh,ahh really never really did anything bad but then I ahh,ahh never really did anything good either" muttered a very sheepish and visibly rattled Dave. "Maybe I'll just come back another time".Dave starts to turn away nervously stumbles,spilling out the contents of his satchel.Saint Peter helps him collect his things. Along with super feet,passion bolt grease and miracle fabric are hundreds of prayer cards stuffed into his bag by his buddys. On any other day,at any other time, still probably not enough,but at closing time on Easter Sunday there's room for one more.
    Better to be lucky than good, ain't that right Dave ?

    After I read Chris Harris' post about Dave, I left a quiet voice mail on his cell phone. I hope that he got it. I told him how sorry that I was about his situation, and that he has a lot of friends that care about him. It was a hard call to make.
    Although I never met Dave face to face, I knew him on the phone starting back when I used to write for Shooters News. I wrote about several of his products. After that he would call every few months, or I would call him, and we would have a good long chat, about all sorts of things. I was always glad to hear his voice on the other end of the line.

    Because I knew he was always looking for new products, any time that I had an idea, I would run it by him. He had a good sense of what his market was, and was a very patient listener to all sorts of schemes. At least one of them become part of his line. I felt privileged to have been of some use to a friend. And then, a while back, I got a call, he was in the hospital for tests and happened to have my number on his cell phone, and I was able to find someone else's that he needed. We had a good visit. It was sad news to hear. That was the first that I knew of his illness. Later, when he was back home, going to the hospital mornings, for radiation treatments, he continued to work, even though the treatments left him fatigued. I will miss Dave, as I am sure many of you who had the pleasure of knowing him will also. RIP

    My God...

    What's caused his passing?

    Dave is one of the nicest men on this planet! ...I still remember how he talked with me at the Supershoot two years ago... his smiling face... his nice gifts...his emails, etc.

    Rest in peace Dave. May your spirits will always be with us, my Friend!

    It won't be the same.

    At times like this, words escape me. The Super Shoot will not be the same without Dave and his new array of products. I, along with all who knew him will miss him greatly. My condolences to all family and friends. James

    It is difficult for me to believe he is gone. We began shooting here in Wisconsin at the Bristol range in the late 90's where we would share a table to load on Sunday mornings before moving to W.VA. where his employment took him.
    Quick minded, gentle, humerous and full of ideas. I will miss him dearly.

    We really are diminished...

    Dave has been a guest in our house. We have shot together, played blackjack at the local casino together, discussed a zillion products together... just the things friends do.

    Dave called me a couple of months ago and told me he had cancer and was getting ready for the treatment. I had no idea that he might go this fast.

    This is so sad... this is one guy you can't replace.

    Very sad to hear. Dave was one of those guys that I looked forward to seeing at a match. He was always trying to come up with the latest gadget for the BR shooter. He will be missed.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you and let his light shine upon you, and bring you peace.
