I had the honor and privledge to work with Stevie. We worked side by side for several years. He was a very hard working and dedicated person, to his family, his co-workers, his job and to the people around him. He taught me so much and always had time for my questions. He always looked after me when I was not feeling well. His family was very important to him as well and he loved them very much. He always had some exciting conversation that included his wife and two children, which he adored. He was always very proud of his family. He was an extremely humble man that believed in the lord and always served him well. He was a true man that I always looked up to. He will sincerely be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, children and grandchildren. Kevin Dalton


I always remember how Steve never used anything as a excuse. People would say he had a right to a excuse with his physical arm situation. However I never hear him make any. He didn’t want any excuses or pity from anyone. If you felt sorry for him on a sports field , that’s when he won the sport you were playing him in.
He was one of the most emotionally balanced people I know. He knew when to be Tender & When to be Tough.
He loved Donna ,Steve, Elisa more than life itself, God has gained a GREAT team mate in heaven . I can hear him saying : Don’t feel sorry fo me, I feel Sorry for you.

I’ll would take Steven A. Doran on my team ANYTIME.!!!! We Love all of you.


25 years of the best friendship Stevie was always there for us and especially for me we all miss him very much your friend Glenn


I did not know Steve well, but spent some time with both he and Dona when visiting my grandson and Elisa for Rylin’s birth. Steve was a very friendly, pleasant, and outgoing person. He was always smiling and told about some of his trips. It was obvious that he loved his family very much. He will be greatly missed by all.
