FAIEFIELD, MAINE—James H. “Jimmy” Dorrian, passed away surrounded by his devoted family on Monday, January 23, 2012, after a long struggle with heart disease. He was born in Fairfield, Maine, the fourth child of Charles and Vivian (Smith) Dorrian. He was raised and educated in Fairfield schools and graduated from Lawrence High School in 1952. Immediately after graduation he began working for Keyes Fibre Company. Entering the Army in 1958, he served as a currier for the guided missile systems based in Boston, Massachusetts, until 1961. He returned to Keyes Fibre and worked his way up to management where he remained until his retirement in 1993. On June 13, 1981, Jimmy married his best friend, Denise Bolduc, at Sacred Heart Church in Waterville, Maine. In June 2011 they were honored for their 30th anniversary by their children. Jim was a past member of the Waterville Elks Lodge. He also attended monthly reunions of the Lawrence High School class of 1952 and supported the Winslow High School class of 1944. His love of hunting and fishing was integral to the way he lived his life. He truly respected nature and enjoyed all the time he spent at his wilderness camp on Moxie Lake. It was a love he passed on to his children and there was nothing he enjoyed more than sharing good sportsmanship in nature with his family and friends, especially Doug Mullen. Jimmy was a jovial, sociable man who could spin a tale, dance, share a joke or a meal and always have a good time. He was a constant companion to Denise, assisting and attending all her events as a caterer and singer. Even through dialysis he rarely missed his tri-weekly three o’clock coffee with his buddies at Tim Horton’s. Jimmy was predeceased by his parents; his first wife, Martha (Reed) Dorrian; and his brothers, Lisle Dorrian and Maynard Dorrian. He is survived by his wife, Denise; his children, Darrell “Rusty” Dorrian and his wife, Sharon of Alexandria, Virginia, Nanci Rodrigue and her husband, Jake of China, Maine, and Rhys Dorrian of Fairfield, Maine; six grandchildren; six great grandchildren; his sister, Edith (Dorrian) Menditto of West Greenwich, Rhode Island; his in-laws, Yolanda Dorrian of Newtown, Connecticut, Lois Dorrian of Canterbury, Connecticut, Robert Bolduc of Waterville, Maine, Melanie and Gilbert Lemieux of Clinton, Maine, Peter and Roseanne Bolduc of Waterville, Maine, and Janet and Charles Paquet of Winslow, Maine; and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. The family extends special thanks to Dr. Rosalind Waldron and to the staff at MaineGeneral Dialysis Unit for their exceptional care.
