Obituary of Millard W. Dolley
Millard “Mickey” Walter Dolley, 75, passed away on February 25 after a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer, at home in the presence of his wife, Judy (Biron) Dolley. Born on November 21, 1946 in Lincoln, ME, he was the son of Walter Leigh and Shirley Kimball Dolley of Lincoln, ME.
Mickey was a graduate of Mattanawcook Academy, Class of 1965. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy after technical school, joining the Silent Services in January 1966. He became a torpedo operation and maintenance operator on the USS Sablefish SS-303, making lifelong friends. He left the Navy in October 1969, going on to join the Maine Air National Guard and complete 26 years of military service. Mickey worked at General Electric for 30+ years as a lathe machine operator, retiring in April 2003. Raised a Mason on February 25,1981, he was a member of the Kenduskeag Lodge No.137. He became a member of the Anah Shrine on June 5,1982, an active member of the Keystone Cop Unit from 1984-1997. Riding Mickey’s Harley was a favorite pastime he and Judy enjoyed, touring as far as Sturgis. He joined a Masonic riding group, the Low XII Chapter of Widow Sons, in 2015. He enjoyed the charity rides, brotherhood, and companionship of many treasured friends within this group. To say he was a UMaine hockey fan is an understatement - he has been a season ticket holder since the program’s inception in 1977. He traveled many places with the team, going as far as Alaska. Other pastimes included golfing, the GE League and Florida annual, kayaking, camping, fly fishing, and most of all traveling.
The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude for the exceptional care Mickey received from his palliative care team at CCOM of Brewer and his hospice team from Beacon Hospice.
Mickey is survived by his wife Judy of Brewer; daughters Stephanie Nutt (Matt) of Hampden and Heather Smith (Bruce) of Orono; grandchildren Reagan & Grady Partridge and Corbin Smith; sister Patricia Dolley (Becca) of Augusta; stepchildren Jeremiah Gamble (Marie) of CA, Amanda Burke of Hampden, and Zachary Gamble (Breanna) of TX; step grandchildren Orilla & Wynter Gamble, Orion & Elias Burke, and Connor Gamble; and special family Christine Morrison (Ryan) of Eddington (William, Sophia, and Katherine).
