The Doran's were my second family growing up. Jim was conservative in every way and so intelligent, I learned a lot from him. It was no surprise he went in to achieve all he did. There is a place in our hearts for those childhood memories that are stored away forever and Jim, Tommy and Bob will be there in mine ♥️ May they all Rest In Peace .

I first met Jim in 2006 and ended up joining him at Raytheon in 2013; he subsequently became my boss. Jim was just as committed to his job as he was a loving husband and father. He spoke lovingly about his upbringing and family. May he rest in eternal peace. My heartfelt condolences to all of his loved ones. Nik & Carla Cheshire, England

Jim was as classy a man as I've ever known. We first met in the dormitories of the University of Colorado our Freshman year. We were lifelong friends ever since. I will miss our conversations as we lived across country from each other. He loved his family and talked about them with a special glow. Rest in peace my dear friend.
Kristi Craig left a message on July 17, 2022:
We will miss Jim dearly. He was a great brother-in-law (the in-laws have to stick together) who was a dear friend. From swapping Hill stories, to talking about music and seeing shows, him trying to teach my husband and I to ski (sorry Jim - we are just not skiers) , wrangling our children together, to sharing laughs on ski trips, cruise vacations and most holidays, Jim has been a big part of my family's life and we will always love him and remember the wonderful times we had together. May God bless you and your family always.
Beth Troutman left a message on July 16, 2022:
We knew Jim through our kids. Over the years we got to know him and Veronica through school and Capernaum events and even some gatherings in our home. I will always remember his kind smile, warm personality, and amazing attitude, even in the face of cancer. I would have never guessed what he was going through if I hadn’t known. A wonderful man and father. He is going to be so very missed. Much Love, The Troutmans
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I remember Jim as always, kind, smiling. I talked to him a couple of weeks ago before he went to hospice. Even with pain and what he was facing, he was still positive. As a child, growing up with him, he was fun! I do remember him wanting to always be outside! I can still see the neighborhood children going home as dusk settled but Jim always wanted to stay out a little longer. I was afraid of the dark but didn't want to leave him alone! He was always so cute! Love you Jim.
Jon Kasle left a message on July 15, 2022:

I was so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Growing up together in Clifton Park, Jim was always so kind and friendly. Our games of football in the Doran front yard were epic!! I will always remember his incredible smile. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you as you grieve his loss. May God comfort you and bring you peace. -Bob Renzi

Jim, I will greatly miss our bi-weekly venting sessions. I feel truly blessed to have started my career with you way back when in the Congress and to have had your friendship for so long. The Lord took you from us far too early, although I'm sure he has a grander plan for you in Heaven. I'll miss your friendship buddy. I look forward to meeting up with you again some day, catching up, and enjoying a good gin & tonic. Rest in peace my friend.

Jim, Wherever you are a piece of me has gone with you. Memories of our family, growing up together in Clifton Park, family holidays, kick the can and trips to the Cape are overwhelming me this week, so bittersweet. I am so grateful for those times and for having you as my brother. I hope you are playing a game of Hearts with Tom and Dad right now. I will love and miss you always. Julie

Dear Doran family - very sad to hear of Jim's passing. I had the pleasure and honor of knowing Jim when we worked together at Raytheon. I always enjoyed my conversations with Jim - he had a delightful, low key dry sense of humor, was always patient and accommodating when asked for help, was very knowledgeable on a wide range of topics and was someone with whom you wished you could spend more time. He will be greatly missed! Our prayers are with you and the family. Tom & Lynne Dougherty
