CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- Cortlandt resident Thomas James "Jim" Dorsey, died Sunday, Dec. 20. He was 74.

Dorsey worked for Best Plumbing Supply in Yorktown and Somers for many years, until he retired in 2008. He was a volunteer at the Community Food Pantry.

He enjoyed roving the world with his wife, and he taught himself German, Italian, French and a bit of Mandarin to better absorb a country's culture.

Dorsey is survived by his wife Judy Gallo; sister-in-law Catherine Brittis; brothers-in-law Anthony and Louise Gallo and Ken and Zirka Gallo; eight nieces and nephews and their spouses; 17 great-nieces and nephews; two great-great nephews and a great-great niece; and many cousins and good friends.

Dorsey was predeceased by his parents Ella (Bleakley) and Thomas F. Dorsey.

Visiting hours are from 2-5 p.m Sunday at Dorsey-Carlone Funeral Home , 1100 Cortlandt St., Peekskill. A memorial Mass will be conducted at 11:30 a.m. Monday at Assumption Church, Peekskill.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to ALS Association of Greater New York, Phelps Hospice at Phelps Memorial Hospital Center or the Community Food Pantry at St Mary's Mohegan Lake, 1836 East Main St., Mohegan Lake, NY 10547.
