Roy P. Doiron

SKOWHEGAN – It is with great sorrow that we announce the quiet passing of Roy Philip Doiron, beloved husband, Father, Grandfather Brother and friend, from complications of Covid-19 on Jan. l0, 2022 at his home in Skowhegan. He fought the good fight and now he is home.

Roy was born on Nov. 1, 1945, in Skowhegan at home, the 4th son of Joseph and Evelyn (Marcoux) Doiron. He was educated in Skowhegan schools, and attained his GED in the Army which he served in from 1962 through 1965. In 1966 he married Pam Doiron, his lifelong best friend. They were blessed with two sons, Troy in 1967 and Aaron in 1972.

Roy was a quiet, loving man who enjoyed helping out family and friends when he could. He loved to fish and enjoyed fishing forays with his two sons and brother Jim. He enjoyed many many memorable trips to the coast, especially Boothbay Harbor. Family rides to the coast and up to Jackman and Greenville were looked forward to. He had worked for the Skowhegan Dry Cleaners from 1967 to 1975. With the economy not good, Roy left the Dry Cleaners and struck off into the carpentry field, where he stayed until he was forced to retire because of ill health.

Roy is survived by his loving wife Pam; two sons Troy and Aaron; six grandchildren, Megan Ann Doiron and significant other Taylor, twins Kaitlyn and Courtney, Savannah, Skyler Lee and Tessa Jo Doiron; three brothers, Bob and wife Linda of Wellington, Jim of Skowhegan, and Raymond and Judie of Longs, S.C. He also leaves behind some special “family” members, sister-in-law Katherine Brough of Midlothian, Texas, Sherrie Pittman of Midlothian, Texas, and Rusty Chenoweth Blakeman and husband Ron of Portland, Mich.; and many nieces and nephews scattered in Maine, Texas and Oklahoma. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers Arthur, Eddie, only sister Mary Leona Savage and youngest brother Francis.

We would like to sincerely thank Dr. Alicia Forster and Maine General Health Home Care for all of the wonderful care they gave to Roy . They went beyond the call. Thank you especially to Linda his PT who never gave up. Also to Dorothy ,Heather, Laura and Ted .

Per Roy’s wishes, there will be no services. He wished to be remembered with a smile. His Cremation was under the direction of Dan and Scotts Funeral Home in Skowhegan
