Kelly M Dorscher

August 17, 1943 — February 24, 2023

Kelly Martin Dorscher was born in Walnut, Iowa to June and Martin Dorscher on August 17, 1943 and left this life on February 24, 2023. He is survived by his only daughter, Deidre Andres Dorscher, who misses him with all her heart; his sister Kris Ferry, her husband David and their children Shannon and Kendra; his brother Rodney Dorscher, his wife Becky and their girls Angela and Elizabeth. He is also survived by his cat Snowball, nephews Elijah and Luke Bergmeier, and special friends Cindy Walter and Percy Carl York along with so many others.

He is preceded in death by his parents June and Martin, sister Carol, niece Amy, soulmate Karen, and his faithful dog Brownie.

Kelly graduated from Fairbury Junior College and the University of Nebraska Lincoln with a degree in accounting. He moved with his family to Cozad where he eventually became secretary/treasurer for Paulsen’s; in the 80’s opened Kelly’s Hardware. Customers, and all who knew him, will miss Kelly’s jocularity and fun spirit. 

Kelly loved life and never met a stranger. He traveled the world and made friends wherever he roamed. The world will be a little less fun without him.

There will be a celebration of life for Kelly on Tuesday, March 14, 2023 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Cozad Elks Lodge. We all know that Kelly loved gathering with friends and family. We hope you can join us.

In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to the Elks Lodge or the charity of your choice.
