Dorman R. Gallagher

Bristol - Dorman R. Gallagher, 86, of Bristol passed away on January 28, 2021 at the Bristol Hospital, Bristol, CT.

He was born in Grand Falls, NB, Canada on May 24, 1934, the son of the late Clarence and Celeste (Bolstridge) Gallagher.

Dorman was a resident of Bristol for nearly 60 years.  He was often seen taking a daily walk near downtown Bristol. In later years, after a serious fall, he took his daily walk pushing a walker and wearing a helmet. He was truly a man with a kind and generous heart, and he contributed to countless charities throughout the years. He will be dearly missed by his family and acquaintances.
