Nat Dortch

In Memory of Nat Dortch

The Laurel Foundation lost a very important member in January of 2018. Nat was unafraid to help in the battle against childhood cancer and support the cause in whatever way he could. He led the charge at BBQ on the River to gain volunteers and to keep those volunteers in good spirits with his quick wit and positive attitude.

Nat will be greatly missed by all of us.

A Note From Terri Jo Clark

“To family and friends, as BBQ on the River continues without our TLF champion, Nat Dortch Jr., cancer claims others. After death life goes on as we learn to live without all but wonderful memories…and our vow to fight until pigs fly!

Dad loved this event and wanted it to be the best every year. We need everyone’s help to make this happen in 2019. Anything you can do we greatly appreciate. Donate, volunteer, patron, spread the word…

Mom always says angels abound so we are sending this on wings and a prayer, still grieving but hoping. – Dortch’s, Tilley’s, and Clark’s”
