Obituary

Mr. Maxie Lawrence Dorsett, 89, of Kingston, died Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at his residence, surrounded by his family.

Born February 7, 1930 in Palmetto, Georgia, he was a son of the late Guy Dorsett and the late Katherine Croker Dorsett. Maxie was a veteran of the U.S. Army during the Korean conflict. He worked in refrigeration at Potter and Rayfield in Atlanta and then as a diesel mechanic until he retired from American Freight in 1985. Maxie was a faithful member of the Teamsters Union and supported union-made products. A lifelong automobile enthusiast, Maxie built and raced cars. He enjoyed spirited conversations with other enthusiasts about the best and fastest makes, models and engines. He also took pleasure in horse-trading and haggling to get the best deal he could, no matter the product or service. Maxie knew how to work with wood and crafted functional and decorative home decor pieces, furniture and vanities, many of which he gifted to his children. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife Elberta; and his siblings, Murl Dorsett, Lillie Dorsett Rowe, Paul Dorsett, and Ellen Dorsett Wylie.

Survivors include his daughters, Pamela Dorsett (John Mozzone) of Atlanta, Toni Dorsett Spann (Johnny) of McDonough, and Tammi Dorsett of Adairsville; sons, Joseph Dorsett, Max Dorsett, and Tim Isaac (Julie), all of Kingston; grandchildren, Jonathan Turner, Zachary Pas, Chad Pas, David Dorsett, Anthony Dorsett, Katherine Mozzone, Nicholas Mozzone, Brittnie Isaac West, and Brian Isaac; and great-grandchildren, Madison Dorsett, Eli West, Ezra West, Eon West, and Elliott Isaac.

Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at11:00 a.m. in the Chapel of Parnick Jennings Funeral Home with Deacon Miguel Echevarria officiating. Private interment will be in Kingston City Cemetery. The family will receive friends on Friday, April 12, 2019 from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

The family suggests that those who wish may make donations in Mr. Dorsett’s honor to the American Diabetes Association, 233 Peachtree St. Suite 2225, Atlanta, GA 30303.
