Obituary: Alvin James Doiron – Boxing 1938 – December 16, 2011

Alvin James Doiron

Alvin James Doiron, 96, passed away on Friday, December 16, in a local hospital after a brief illness.

He was born in Thornwell, Louisiana, to Jedeon Leonce Doiron and Mary Julia Speeg Doiron. He was raised there in a loving family of twelve children, graduated from Lake Arthur High, and went on to attend SLU in Lafayette where he received his B.A. degree. He taught at Jennings High School upon graduation and met his wife there when she applied for his job. He had resigned to take another job which he held for a few months and then was drafted into the army to serve in World War II from 1941 to 1946. Years later he retired from the army reserve as a Lt. Colonel. After the war he moved to the Maplewood area where he worked briefly at Firestone and then as an accountant at Cities Service for 35 years.

Mr. Doiron was an easy going person who was always kind and polite. He never wanted anything for himself but was very generous to his family. He was content to quietly enjoy life and leave the spotlight to others. He had a passion for current events, politics, and studying the financial market. He was of the Catholic faith, but often attended the Maplewood Methodist Church with his wife.

He is survived by his sister, Ida Mae Watkins of Thornwell; sister-in-law, Bernice Arceneaux of Welsh; daughters, Betty Waldron and husband, Jim of San Antonio, Texas, Dianne Deason and husband, Ronnie of Sulphur, and Nancy Doiron of Westlake; grandchildren, Brad Deason of Baltimore, Lori Reynolds and husband, Bob of Fort Worth, and Amy Waldron of San Antonio; step-grandchildren, James Waldron of Austin and Matt Waldron of San Antonio; great-grandchildren, Julia, Holden, and Brooklyn, all of San Antonio, Landon and Sadie of Fort Worth, and Cleo of Austin. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews and their children, too numerous to mention.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 69 years whom he adored, Pearl Drummond Doiron; brothers, Jedeon Doiron, Ed Doiron, Vince Doiron, Albert (twin) Doiron, Hughes Doiron, and Steve Doiron; sisters, Adele Manuel, Frances McClure, Rosemond Graham, and Margaret LeBleu.

His funeral will be at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, December 21, in Hixon-Sulphur Memorial Funeral Home. The Reverend Doug Cain will officiate. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until the time of the funeral. Internment will follow at Prien Memorial Park. The family requests that memorial donations be made to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Diabetes Association , or the charity of one’s choice. Our hearts go out to all who helped care for “Mr. Al” through the years, especially Ann Moss and Evelyn Hardin.
