In Loving Memory of Martin R. Doring, Jr. 1958-2023
Martin Robert Doring, Jr., known by many as Marty, M.R., or grandpa, passed unexpectedly on February 18, 2023, at his home in Alachua, FL. He was born February 11, 1958, in Waterbury, Connecticut.
Marty was predeceased in death by his parents Martin R. Doring, Sr. and Dorothy Agnes (Rehm)Doring. He is survived and missed by his sweet wife, Beth Ann Doring; four sons, Michael Shawn Christy (Rose), Martin R. Doring, III (Melissa), David D. Doring (Geena), and William D. Doring; beloved grandpa to Michelle McFarland (Collin), Michael S. Christy, Jr. (Lauren), Meghan Hyde (Tristan), Bailey Doring, Matthew Christy, Tyler Doring, Maxx Doring, Declan Doring and great grandpa to Jackson Christy; brother to Doug (Diane) Doring and Donald Doring; as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Marty was a retired wood cabinetmaker who enjoyed sports, with some of his favorite teams being the UConn Huskies, NY Rangers, Yankees, Seminoles, and Green Bay Packers. He loved all genres of music and loved to blare it so loud that no one around him could hear themselves think.
Our greatest memories of him will be of his vast knowledge in most things, although he would argue he knew everything. Whether it’s making jokes, reciting hilarious lyrics to popular songs or movies, or family gatherings with his amazing food, there was never a dull moment in his presence. Our trips to Gator Nationals and Disney/Kissimmee will never be the same without him. He was all about FAMILY!
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
