John was one of my most favorite people in this world. He was always friendly and welcoming, with a warmth that would always put me at ease. Always enjoyed our conversations, and was impressed with how much he gave of himself to his community. I will miss him immensely, and will always think of him when I go to roast szalonna. My heartfelt condolences go out to Carole, Kathy, and the rest of the family.

Dear Dorka family, My deepest condolences in the loss of Mr. Dorka. I have so many memories when I was young of being over and visiting in the kitchen! One of my favorite memories were the wonderful pig roasts that he loved to have in the backyard. I know how much he meant to my own dad - he was a great friend to him. He will missed by so many and will leave behind many wonderful memories for everyone. Deepest sympathy, Montina Forman-Gilson and family

So sorry for your loss. Losing a father is hard and not something you easily get over. Having lost my father 3 years ago I can honestly say I know just how you feel. The loss won't go away but the sadness is overtaken by memories in time. Our prayers are with you and your family.

The words don't exist that would offer much comfort. . John was so much more than the words on the page. It was a privilege to know him and to count him as a friend. Along with so many others I'll miss him. A life will lived. Love Glen
