February 11, 1953 - June 3, 2021
Richard Samuel Dorsey, Jr. affectionately known as “Buddy” or “Buddy Boy” passed away Thursday morning, June 3, 2021. Born on February 11, 1953 to the late Richard S. Dorsey, Sr. and Marie Butler-Dorsey. He was raised in Galesville and Skidmore. He attended Anne Arundel County Public Schools. He was employed with various Independent Contractors throughout Anne Arundel County, he was a hard worker and often said “I do the work of three grown men, that’s why my bosses are crazy about me.” “Hello World!” Buddy was quite the entertainer with his overly exaggerated stories and his boisterous personality, he was well loved by all who knew him. He was a person everyone wanted to be around and everyone he was around has a “Buddy Dorsey” story. He left a lasting impression on all. He wasn’t just “life of the party” he was the party! He took pride in looking good, if he wasn’t working, he was dressed to the nines in a big hat, dress clothes or suit, gold chain with a cross and Stacy Adams on his feet in his words “I don’t put clothes on, I wear clothes.” He loved his family, his clothes, old school cars, crabbing, spending time with his grandchildren and hanging out in the yard in Skidmore. Buddy Dorsey was small in stature, but he had the heart of a lion and the strength of a tiger. He was a protector. He always found a way do something or make it work. He never complained, not even when his health was failing. He was a fighter to the end. He was preceded in death by his father, Richard S. Dorsey, Sr.; sister, Mary “Cissy” Tolson; Brother, Ronnie Dorsey, Sr.; father- in-law, Joseph Hicks, Sr.; mother-in-law, Ida Hicks, sister-in- law, Sheena Hicks; brother-in-laws, William Fowlkes, Sr, Charles Diggs, Vernon Hicks, Sr., Joseph Hicks, Dale Hoskins and Milton Colbert.
