Charles Clifford Doiron, 90, of Chelmsford, formerly of Littleton, passed away peacefully surrounded by family February 7, 2021. He was the loving husband of the late Theresa M. Doiron, who passed away in 2018.
Charlie was born in Somerville, MA on July 3, 1930, a son of the late Augustine and Marietta (McCarville) Doiron. He attended local schools and enlisted in the US Navy when he was just 17 years old. After his honorable discharge, Charlie returned home and on July 28, 1951 married Theresa Mary Lydon. Thus began a love story that would span nearly 67 years. Charlie and Theresa would eventually set their roots in Littleton where they raised their family. Charlie was a faithful communicant of St. Anne's church where for many years he served as a Eucharistic Minister. He enjoyed BINGO and will be fondly remembered for his dry sense of humor and quick wit. Above all, family was paramount in Charlie's life. He was a consummate family man, and was always there for his children and grandchildren.
Charlie is survived by his loving daughters, Patricia Johnston and her husband Rick of Littleton, Charlene Dias of Pepperell, Michelle Rego and her husband Bob of Warner, NH and Theresa Graziosi and her husband John of Waltham; his eleven grandchildren, Christopher Johnston, Ryan Johnston, Kerianne Dessautels, Ashley Parks, Jeremy Dias, Lindsay Dias, Matthew Rego, Jonathan Rego, Aristea Graziosi and Cory Graziosi; nine great-grandchildren, Cole Johnston, Owen Johnston, Grady Johnston, Quinn Johnston, Maya Johnston, Connor Parks, Charlie Parks, Kinsley Parks and Alison Rego. Charlie is sadly predeceased by his granddaughter, Courtney Rego. Charlie's family would especially like to thank Annie Pokumensah for her loving care and attention to Charlie over the last few years.
