Doran; children, Alyssa Jean of Orlando Fla., Caroline Elizabeth, Brianna Dalton, Steven Edward and cherished granddaughter, Lily-Jaye, all of Halfmoon; siblings, Kenneth, Kelli, Karla and Kim, as well as many nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank the Rubin Dialysis Center of Clifton Park and the staff at St. Peter's Hospital, the Clifton Park Halfmoon Ambulance as well as the Hillcrest Fire Department for their excellent care.
