Patrick Cyril Doiron
Doiron, Patrick "Pat" Cyril –
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Patrick "Pat" Cyril Doiron, loving husband of Tammy, announces his unexpected passing, which occurred on Monday, January 8, 2018 at his residence. Born on August 20, 1955 in Saint John, he was a son of the late Cyril "Pete" and Constance (Finigan) Doiron.
In his younger years, Pat was a Sergeant in the Artillery Division of the Canadian Militia. He lived a life of service, working with the Centre for Youth Care, the Salvation Army, the John Howard Society and Key Industries. Pat was a therapeutic foster parent for 30 years, helping children find success in the most difficult situations. He was known for his wonderful smile and quick wit, and for always being there for anyone in need. Known for his open door policy, which let people know they were heard and accepted, whether they were family or not. He believed everyone should have someone on their side, no matter what. He was truly a gentle giant. Pat’s greatest joy was his family. His love and devotion to them was unparalleled. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Pat is survived by his loving wife Tammy; son, Alex Doiron (Ashley); siblings, Peter (Jeanette), Jane Lockhart (Dan), Bob (Pam), Michael (Diane), and Christine; grandson, Lincoln, who was the light of his life; as well as many nieces and nephews and grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
