Vigil to remember life of toddler tragically killed

Posted: Updated:

STRUTHERS, Ohio - A toddler tragically killed when an SUV backed over him last week in Struthers is being remembered.

At the very spot 1-year-old Adan Dorman lost his life, friends and family remember the joy he brought to them.

"Any kind of day you were having, that boy would light your day up," said Dorman's Aunt Brittany Sinchak. "He would give you the biggest smile and the biggest hug and tell you he loved you and you couldn't ask for anything more."

Dorman, who would have turned two-years-old exactly one month from now, passed away after he was struck by the driver of an SUV, who was backing out of the driveway at 20 Euclid Avenue.

On Monday, friends and family remembering Dorman lit candles and released balloons carrying a heavy message.

"Try to show everybody that accidents can happen and always hold your loved ones close, because you never know when it could be the last time you hold them," said Sinchak.

"It was a terrible accident and I just hope people come together and pray for the Dorman family. Give them the strength to carry on for the loss of the loving little boy he was," said Dorman's Babysitter Lori Paradise.

A benefit dinner to help Adan's family with funeral expenses will be held this Friday at St. Nicholas Church Hall in Struthers. Doors open at 5 o'clock, the dinner will include a Chinese auction, 50/50 raffle and bake sale.

Tickets will be sold at the door. Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for kids between the ages of 3-10.

Monetary donations can be made at any Huntington Bank location, under the Adan Dorman Benefit Fund.
