COLUMBIA — Bill Doiron, a former maintenance staff assistant for University Medical Center and an MU Residential Life employee, showed no negativity in his life.
"He always came to work with a smile and left work with a smile," said Ronnie McQuitty, a friend and coworker. "He was a very helpful and kind person."
Mr. Doiron died Friday, Jan. 7, 2011. He was 52.
He was born Jan. 21, 1958, to Justin and Lena Belle in Baton Rouge, La.
"He had a smile that, for a guy, would sweep anyone off their feet," McQuitty said.
Mr. Doiron married Hazel Poff on April 3, 2002.
He was a member of the Columbia Seventh-Day Adventist Church and loved sharing what God had done for him.
Mr. Doiron also enjoyed fishing, gardening, camping, blue grass music and taking pictures. He enjoyed everything about life and "was extremely crazy for his kids," McQuitty said.
"He really liked sports and fast cars," McQuitty said. "He loved everything motorcycles."
Mr. Doiron is survived by his wife, Hazel Poff; three children, Blue Max Morrell of Denham Springs, La., and Douglas and Crystal Doiron, both of Bolivar; and nine siblings.
