Jack LeMoyne Dotts

Jack LeMoyne Dotts, of Gainesville, FL., passed away on Tuesday, March 1, 2016, at the age of 76. The son of Milford and Alice Dotts, Jack was born and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, where he met his wife, Donna, in the First Grade. He excelled as a percussionist and received the Johnstown High Band’s John Philip Sousa Award during his senior year. He also enjoyed playing the piano and organ. Jack graduated in 1963 from the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. A member of the University’s ROTC, Jack was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Airforce and received an Honorable discharge as a Captain in 1968. He moved his family to Gainesville in 1970 to take a position at the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center. He took an early retirement due to medical issues. Despite these issues, Jack persevered with a dry sense of humor, an appreciation for symphonic music, historical non-fiction, and current events, and a devotion to his family and religion. He was a member of Wesley United Methodist Church. Jack is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Donna Dotts; two children- Kim Dotts-Hoehnle (Carl ) and Jason Dotts ( Ranee ), and two grandchildren- Bobby Hoehnle and Jackson Marra-Dotts. A Celebration of Life Service will be held Sunday, March 13, 2016 at 3:00 PM at Wesley United Methodist Church, 826 NW 23rd Avenue, Gainesville with a dessert reception to follow.
