My thoughts are with all members of the Dohlman family. Its been many years since I had seen John but know he was much loved. Many years since our parents gathered for POKER nights.
So sorry to hear about Johns passing. He was always happy go lucky guy. I remember playing baseball with him on the Hampton Hawks Babe Ruth team. Good guy gone too soon and thank you for you service.
