Curtis Ray Dorris, 38, of Sandy, Utah, passed away on December 16, 2022, after a rare battle with intrahepatic bile duct cancer.
Curtis was born on September 10, 1984, to Raymond and Pamela Dorris in Salt Lake City, Utah. After graduating from Woodland Hills High School in 2003, he went on to study Chemistry at Salt Lake Community College.
While studying, he landed his dream job as a lab analyst for Nelson Laboratories, kicking off a 6+ year career as a lead lab analyst and safety coordinator.
In 2014, he met Chasity Kelley, and they wed in 2017. Curtis and Chasity spent their days travelling, seeing shows, watching the stars and playing computer games together.
Curtis spent most of his time in his lab at home extracting various chemicals and adding them to his element collection. He also loved working on his saltwater fish tank and turtle tank, computer gaming, gold panning, rock collecting, and making campfire flames into different colours. Most of all, he loved being with his nephew and nieces, teaching them new things about science.
Curtis was predeceased by his Grandparents. He is survived by his wife, Chasity; his parents, Ray and Pam; his sister Kristin (Bob) Demkov and their four kids, Robert, Olivia, Emela, and Raylyn.
Celebration of life will be held at Memorial Mountain View Mortuary, Cemetery & Pet Garden on December 30th at 6:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to your favourite wildlife or space organization in Curtis’s name. In his memory, he will also be sent off into deep space on an Enterprise mission on the Vulcan ship, so he may “Boldly go where no man has gone before”.Service Information
