Dotson services Thursday

Born in Whitesburg, he was a son of Daniel Dotson of Jenkins, and Julie Olliges Belcher of Abingdon, Va. He died November 11 in Pulaski, Va.

Mr. Dotson had lived his life in eastern Kentucky, southwestern Virginia and Jensen Beach, Fla. He loved his mother, father, brothers, sisters and all of his blended family. He loved food, travel, music, movies, family pets and University of Kentucky basketball.

He made a profession of faith in Jesus when he was 10 years old, and was a member of Crosspoint Community Church in Boone, N.C.

He loved the outdoors, the big city and the ocean equally, and was smart, funny, and one of the kindest souls you would ever know. His employers admired his integrity and work ethic.

Surviving in addition to his parents are a special mother, Ashley Bentley of Whitesburg; three brothers, Kristopher Dotson and wife Lyndsey of Louisville, and Luke and Nathan Anderson, both of Whitesburg; two sisters, Brooklyn Bentley of Whitesburg, and Ariane Hegarty and husband Cillian of Abingdon, Va.; and two grandmothers, Shirley “Nana” Olliges of Jensen Beach, Fla., and Anita Belcher of Haysi, Va.
