Robert ‘Bob’ or ‘Doc’ Eugene Doran
Robert “Bob” or “Doc” Eugene Doran joined the love of his life, Nita M. Doran, Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018, in eternal rest.
Bob was born March 10, 1943, in Norwalk, to Robert W. Doran and LaVerne (Carry) Doran.
Bob is survived by his mother-in-law, Maria (Clifford) Adams; sister-in-law, Jeannine (Richard) Curns; sister-in-law, Ginny (Cliff) Adams; three daughters, Tami (Glenn Stead) Kirian, Angela (Greg Young) Bour and Trisha (Ryan) Fair; nine grandchildren, Maria Aller, Alexis Kirian, Adam Aller, Abby Aller, Aubrey Bour, Ronald P. Bour, Kaleb Fair, Kaylee Fair and Paige Pitchford; 10 great-grandchildren, Hayden, Carson, Chloye, Marques, Aria, Carenna, Easton, Justice, Menziah and Brayton; and loving family in Belgium.
Preceding him death were his mother and father; beloved wife, Nita; father-in-law, Clifford P. Adams; two brothers-in-law, Clifford F. Adams and Richard Curns; and two great-grandchildren, Braxton and My’Niyah.
Bob and Nita were married Aug. 12, 1977, in Tiffin, and lived a life full of joy, attributed to the numerous friends they shared.
Many of Bob and Nita’s memories were made at the bowling alley, golf courses (where they met) and Eagles and Moose clubs. Bob and Nita traveled along the East Coast for many golf trips with Jerry and Barb Kuhn throughout the years. They also enjoyed dancing as part of the Boot Scooters, watching the Cleveland Indians, and hosting many family gatherings at their home. Bob loved Nita dearly, and would always melt our hearts with his romantic holiday cards and sneaking her sweet kisses.
Bob was employed at Corbin Corp. and retired from Smith’s Frosted Foods.
He enjoyed playing golf and poker with “the boys” and playing with his grandkids. Bob had a passion for working in his yard and maintaining his koi pond. He enjoyed many afternoons watching the Golf Channel in his recliner with one of his cats, Tigger or Suzie, sitting on his lap. “Grandpa,” as the family knew him, will always be remembered as the stubborn old man with a heart of gold.
A celebration of life will be 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018, at 215 Charlotte St., Tiffin. The family will be hosting an open house for friends and extended family.
In honor of his wife, donations may be made to The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation or donor’s choice.
Hoffmann-Gottfried-Mack Funeral Home & Crematory is assisting the family with arrangements.
Condolences may be sent and the guestbook signed at www.hgmackfuneralhome.com.
