Donald E. Doran, 77, passed away on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at the Glens Falls Hospital with his family by his side.

Born August 25, 1942 in Fort Edward, NY he was the son of the late Wilfred and Edith (Hathaway) Lessard.

On July 2, 1966, Donald married the love of his life, Nicole Lemay. Together they worked side by side for over 30 years as the husband and wife team named Don’s Drywall in Warrensburg, NY. Don was also employed at GE in Schenectady, and as a custodian in the South Glens Falls School District. He was also a driver for New Country and the Mackey Group in Saratoga, and Lia Nissan in Glens Falls.

Don had a large faith in God and his church. He was truly a servant in all aspects. He would help anyone in need and had a very giving heart. Although he worked long hours, he always made time for his children, family, neighbors, and friends. He enjoyed camping, long drives, and volunteering his time at his church. He loved to build things with wood for the homes of his grandchildren, family, and friends. He will be greatly missed by many.

Left to cherish his memory are, his loving wife of 53 years, Nicole Doran, his daughter Michele Johnson (Harold) and daughter Samantha Brannan, his daughter Christine Doran and her son Caleb Doran. His siblings; Rosalie Stafford (Rodney), Gerry Finney, Albert Doran (Maribel), Noreen Kauffman and Winnie Lessard, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Arrangements are in the care of the M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 82 Broadway, Fort Edward, NY 12828. A Memorial service will be conducted at 11am on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at the Durkeetown Baptist Church, 2 Durkeetown Road, Fort Edward, NY 12828.

Condolences to the family on Donald's passing, from your former neighbors in Willsboro NY. Memories of younger years when Donnie used to care for my Aunt Cora Smith's yard and grounds on Station Rd for extra cash. Teenagers actually used to work back then.
We remember those times and----Rosalie, Gerry and Albert too. Best wishes always.
Sincerely, Lloyd and Barbara(Morgan) Brockney

Even though we didn't see much of Don and Nicole over the past few years, he was a remarkable man. He truly was a servant of God always helping anyone needing help. Kris just visited with Don a few months ago when he was asking for some suggestions on a project he was working on for a friend in need. So typical of this most generous man. Don will be missed by so many. We are very fortunate to be able to call Don, as well as Nicole our friends. Much love and our most sincere condolences to you Nicole and your entire family.
