Michael J. Doran, age 52 of Lincoln, RI, passed away unexpectedly on January 4, 2013. He is the beloved husband of Rebecca (Cullen) Doran.

Michael is the son of Lillian (Holland) Doran and the late Joseph F. Doran former Fall River City Clerk, and son in-law of John and Barbara Cullen.

In addition to his wife, mother and in-laws, he is survived by his two children Ryan P. Doran of Cumberland, RI and Courtney J. Doran and her husband Nick Birchall of Pawtucket, RI; a brother William K. Doran and his wife Maryann of Fishersville, VA and a sister Joan M. Malloy of Fall River, MA; two brother in-laws John Cullen and Christian Cullen; two grandchildren Jordan and Aubrey Birchall and many nieces, nephews, extended family and beloved friends.

Michael was a graduate of Bishop Connelly High School and attended St. Joseph's College in Maine. He was employed at Verizon as a Lineman for 15 years.

Michael was a member of the Seven Sins Motorcycle Club. While everyone knows of his love to ride, most of all he cherished adventures with his wife, Rebecca, and dog, Casey. Michael absolutely loved life and had a passion for cooking, camping, beaching, golfing, hockey, and relaxing in his hot tub naked. He enjoyed time with his family, particularly his mother, children and grandchildren. He will be forever remembered for his quick wit, engaging personality, love of life and family, and his heartfelt ability to bring people together to help those in times of need. Michael was happiest when making others happy. He was the glue that kept us all together and the fuel that kept us on the go.

His funeral will be held on Friday, January 11, 2013 at 9am from the WARING-SULLIVAN HOME OF MEMORIAL TRIBUTE AT CHERRY PLACE 178 Winter St., Fall River, followed by his funeral mass at 10am in Holy Name Church, 709 Hanover St., Fall River. Visiting hours will be Thursday from 4 to 8pm. Burial will be private.

"Just found out about Mike's passing. Ride Hard, Ride Strong on that endless highway. Rest in peace." Ken Long (Warwick, RI)
