Sean Patrick Doran, 61, of Belding, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, March 2, 2019 at home. Sean was born on November 07, 1957 in Grand Rapids, the son of John G. and Gail Doran.
Sean graduated from Lowell High School with the Class of 1976. Throughout his whole life Sean was a people person. From a young man to later in life he always looked to illuminate the positive aspects of each individual that he encountered. Being nearly 100% Irish Sean truly had “the gift of gab” and could make conversation with anyone, mainly driven by his love of family and friends, and served as an encouragement to others during difficult times. That same resilient spirit helped Sean in his life and trials that he faced; he would do anything for anyone. During downtime, he enjoyed fishing and had an avid love of literature. He was tough as nails, but had a big heart and strong faith in Jesus Christ- he always knew the best in life was yet to come. What earth has lost heaven has gained and he will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Sean is loved and survived by his daughter Amanda (Jason) Johns of Chattanooga, TN, grandchildren; Jameson and Isla, mother of his daughter; Bambi Frazier of Chattanooga, TN mother; Gail Doran Vanstee of Lowell, siblings; Colleen (John) Timpson of Lowell, Kathy (David) Hoseth of Lowell, Christy (John) Ray, Tim Doran, Kim Doran (Daron Ensign) all of Belding, several nieces and nephews whom he adored dearly.
A graveside service will take place in the spring at St. Patrick Cemetery, Parnell. In lieu of flowers memorials may be given to the Lowell Library Children’s program or the Belding Library Children’s program. Envelopes will be available at Johnson-Feuerstein Funeral Home, Belding where cremation services have been entrusted.
