BANGOR – George Louis Doughty, Jr., 82, passed away on July 5, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born August 9, 1936, the son of George Louis, Sr. and Marion (Brown) Doughty.
George graduated from Bangor High School in the class of 1954. After graduation, he served in the U.S. Navy for four years. George was also a loyal employee for almost 40 years at the Bangor Daily News. A life-long Red Sox fan, George’s fervent wish he would say was to play short-stop for the Red Sox when he grew up. He was also a life-long attendant of almost every Bangor High School sporting event. Passing on his love for baseball, he coached his son, George’s little league baseball team. Through his continued involvement in his children’s activities; he became a mentor and role model for many young people who looked up to him. He enjoyed the outdoors a well as hunting and fishing. Some of his favorite times were spent at hunting camp up in Milo with his buddies.
Above all, George was a devoted family man, and an excellent story teller. He was a devoted and loving husband to his wife, Sandra, and when his father passed away he helped to take care of his mother every single day, as he had promised his father. He particularly enjoyed sharing stories of his childhood adventures with his brother, Jim. He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren for his “Internationally World Famous Pencil Dive” which he claimed to receive a perfect score from the Russian judge. George may have entered many rooms full of strangers, but by the time he left he would know everyone who was there. He was always quick with a joke, and loved unconditionally.
George is survived by his loving wife of almost 59 years, Sandra (Young) Doughty; his daughter, Melissa Rice and her husband, Chris of Waterville, ME; sons, George Louis Doughty III and his wife, Sharon Musall of Monticello, IN, and William Joseph Doughty and his wife, Erin (Chamberlain) of Warwick, RI. His other surviving family members include, brother and best friend, James F. Doughty and wife, Susan (Bell); brother-in-law, David Cole; sister-in-law, Elinor (West) Doughty; grandchildren, Nicholas Rice; Megan Rice; Liam Doughty; Kaila Moore; and Sam Moore; great-grandchild, Noah Rice; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, George was predeceased by his daughter, Julie Elizabeth Doughty; sister, Jacqueline Cole; and brother, Bruce Richard Doughty.
The family would like to thank Dr. Snyder from Northern Light Cancer Care, and the team at Northern Light Hospice, especially Melissa and Nancy for all the kindness and care that they gave to George.
The family invites relatives and friends to share conversation and refreshments from 5-7 pm on Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at the Family Reception Center of Brookings-Smith, 163 Center Street, Bangor where a sharing of remembrances will be held at 6 pm. Those who wish to remember George in a special way may make gifts in his memory to Sarah’s House of Maine, 346 Main Road, Holden, Me. 04429. Condolences to the family may be expressed at

Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed having George as a customer at the Dollar Tree on Union str. He would visit us at least once a week and share some stories and general conversation about his day. Sure will miss him. His smile was contagious. I feel your loss.

Sandra and family:
So sorry to hear of your loss. I can't remember a time when we bumped into you both and George could always put a smile on my face. He was one in a million. Both George and Carroll always had something to say about work! With time, I hope your pain eases and your wonderful memories of your life together fill the void. Both Chris and Jeff also send their condolences.
