Obituary

HERMON – Alan Richard Dorr, Sr., 78, passed away unexpectedly March 29, 2019 at Northern Lights Medical Center in Bangor surrounded by his loving family. He was born March 14, 1941, in Orland, the son of Alard H. and Arlene G. (Nevells) Richardson. Soon after Alan’s birth, the family moved home to the Clark Road in Hermon where Alan spent the rest of his life.
Alan graduated from Hermon High School, Class of 1959, where he was a standout on the basketball and baseball teams and met his lifelong sweetheart, Sandra Conners, in the 9th grade. Alan and Sandra married in 1962 and began their life together in Hermon.
At 15 years old, Alan went to work for Grants Dairy in Bangor and delivered dairy products across the state of Maine for the next 17 years. During which time, with Sandra, founded Dorr Construction, an earthwork services company and continued to operate that business until his death. He left an indelible mark on the Greater Bangor Area through quality work on thousands of construction projects and roads built over the course of his career.
In 1992 along with his son Alan, Jr. and daughter Kathy, Alan started the Coach House Restaurant in Brewer and it soon became an area destination. Alan was very proud of this success and especially valued all of the wonderful employees and customers he came to know over the years.
Alan was a snowmobile enthusiast and he and Sandra were founding members of the Penobscot Snowmobile Club in 1967. In recognition of Alan’s significant contributions to the local trail system, in 2013 they were honored with the Outstanding Private Landowners Award by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Alan treasured the many friends he had at the Snowmobile Club through the years.
Alan’s interests included gardening, Red Sox Baseball, Antique Farm Tractors and, of course he was rarely seen without a faithful German Shepherd or two in his pickup truck who were Alan’s loyal and beloved companions over the years.
Surviving, in addition to Sandra (Conners) Dorr, his loving wife of 57 years, are his daughter, Kathy Dorr of Hermon; and son, Alan Dorr, Jr. of Portland; sisters, Patricia Overlock, and Gail Doughty of Hermon, Muriel Moyers and husband, Gene of Missouri, and Susan Braley and husband, Dennis of Florida; one brother, Timothy Richardson and wife, Brenda of Hermon; brother-in-law, Philip Conners, and Sara of Bangor; and sister-in-law, Katie Conners of California. Besides his parents, Alan was predeceased by a brother, Barrie Richardson; and three brothers-in-law, Beverly Overlock, Lewis Doughty, and Linwood Conners, Jr.
Alan was especially fond and grateful for dedicated employees, Nick Pomeroy and Frank Pulver who helped him run the construction business in his later years.
Relatives and friends are invited to call from 10 am to noon Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at Brookings-Smith, 133 Center St., Bangor where a funeral service will immediately follow with the Rev. Dr. Rex H. Garret officiating. The family invites friends to share conversation and refreshments at the Family Reception Center of Brookings-Smith, 163 Center St., following the funeral service. Interment will be at Snow’s Corner Cemetery, at a later date. Those who wish to remember Alan in a special way may make donations in his memory to the Bangor Humane Society, 630 Mount Hope Avenue, Bangor Maine, 04401. Condolences to the family may be expressed at BrookingsSmith.com

I am a Mainer - In 2005 retired moved to Largo FL...always made sure I visited more than once when I came back to Maine. Always saw Alan sitting in his favorite place with his wife. He always had guests coming over to speak to him. Nice friendly gentlemen. R.I.P. Alan
