It is with a sad sad heart that we learned of Dori Bachman’s death yesterday. Dori, her husband Lowell and their sons Chris and Curt put their hearts and souls into making Para Gear the pillar of the community it is. Dori was active with PIA and the Skydiving Museum, helping them both grow from the ground up.
She and Lowell, who passed in 2008, were truly lovely people — the kind who made you smile and stand a little straighter when you saw them. It seemed like the heaviness of the world lifted when you hugged them. It feels now like a light has gone out on earth with Dori’s passing; hopefully when we look up tonight we can catch her and Lowell’s spirits shining down from above.
