Michael “Parks” Dorsey: 1978-2012

There’s no good way to put this news, so I’ll rely on others to speak for me…

The Daisy Mountain Fire Department is mourning the loss of Engineer Paramedic Michael David Dorsey, 33, who passed away in his home the morning of January 16th 2012.  He leaves behind his wife Felisha, who is five months pregnant with their first child together.

Mike, formerly Michael Parks, was a 15 year veteran of the fire service.  He has served as a member of the Daisy Mountain Fire Department for the last five years.

Mike’s death has come as a shock to the whole department.  “It is difficult to put into words the sadness and emptiness that our organization is going through with the loss of our friend and colleague Michael Dorsey” said Daisy Mountain Fire Chief Mark Nichols. “He was a valued member and will be greatly missed. I know our organization is a better place for having had him here.”

An account has been established to help the Dorsey family.
Donations can be made at Chase Bank, account 2997857764, in the name of
“Daisy Mountain Firefighters Charities Association.”
