Chris John Dority

Mr. Chris John Dority, 46, of Caroga Lake Stage, passed away at home suddenly on March 11, 2013. He was born December 7, 1966, in Gloversville. Chris was educated in Gloversville schools and formerly employed at Somerset Industries in Gloversville.

Chris was an avid outdoorsman. He loved hunting, fishing and camping. He couldn’t wait for hunting season each year, as he would get an early start with his brother, “Rich,” his Grandpa, Uncle Dick and friends. Chris especially loved his dog, Buck. They would take long walks together in the woods. As Chris would share his thoughts out loud, it was as if Buck understood every word as he walked beside his master.

A great storyteller, Chris looked forward to cooking on the outdoor fireplace for family picnics while later gathering around the fireplace to reminisce. He will be sadly missed.

Chris is survived by: his mother, Donna and stepfather, John Horning of Gloversville; three brothers, Richard “Rich” Humphrey, Ronald “Ron” Humphrey and John “Jay” Horning. Chris was raised by very special wonderful grandparents, John and the late Blanche Stevens, who adored Chris as they were such a big part of his life. Several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews also survive.

Private services were held at the convenience of his family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Kobuskie-Konik Funeral Home, 51 Fremont St., Gloversville. Please visit the family’s online guestbook at
