In Loving Memory of Percy Dorsey


Percy was an inspiration to all who were lucky enough to cross his path. After serving in the Army for many years he was honorably discharged and received a Master's in Electronics from Tuskegee University.  He owned his own television repair shop right in the the heart of Joliet's downtown area. He is the inspiration behind the Dorsey Family Foundation and his Legacy will live on through our organization.
