Obituary for Arthur Patrick Dolan

Princeton – Arthur Patrick Dolan, 92, passed away on May 15, 2017 at the Maine Veteran’s Home in Bangor. Arthur was born March 29, 1925 to Edward and Sarah (Nixon) Dolan in Randolph, MA. He spent his childhood years in both Randolph and Cambridge, MA where he attended school before enlisting with the U.S. Navy, serving his country for four years. Arthur owned and operated a trucking company for many years but looked forward to moving to Maine after retirement. He eventually made his way to Princeton in 1988 where he served as town selectman. Arthur had his private pilot’s license, enjoyed collecting lottery tickets, in his younger years raced and owned greyhounds, and was known for his dedication to his church. He was a member of Immaculate Conception R.C. Church, where he attended Mass, in addition to St. Ann’s in Peter Dana Point up until he was unable due to his declining health. Lisa Howard would then faithfully bring communion to Arthur at his home, his family is forever grateful.

In addition to his parents, Arthur was predeceased by his daughter, Lisa Dolan; granddaughters, Gabrielle and Susan Stewart; grandson, Damian and many brothers and sisters. He will be forever remembered as a loving and devoted father and grandfather. Arthur is survived by his ex-wife, Joanne Norton; his ten children, Pat, Mary, Eddie, Barbara, Shirley, Danny, Eileen, David, AnnMarie and Matthew; twenty-one grandchildren and many great grandchildren.
