Albert E. Dolloph


Tuesday, August 13, 2019

LEBANON, NH — Albert E. Dolloph, 87, died peacefully at home in Lebanon August 6, 2019. He was born in Lebanon on April 1, 1932, son of Verne and Nora (Tourville) Dolloph.

Albert (Dolly) lived and worked in Lebanon his entire life. Starting at the age of 15 he began working for the City of Lebanon. Throughout 45 years of employment he worked in the water department, highway department and at the landfill. When he retired he could and would tell anyone where many of the pipes were located and how to maintain and plow all the roads.

Dolly was an avid hunter, fisherman and builder of many things. If anyone in his large extended family needed something fixed, or built they would only need to mention it to him and it was done. His maternal grandfather taught him how to fix anything on the farm. Dolly delighted in caring and providing for his friends and family. His grandchildren and great grandchildren were his pride and joy. Dolly built his home in Lebanon, and a homebuilt airplane. He then needed to learn how to fly but that did not deter him in the least. There were some difficulties getting the airplane out of the basement but in the “can do” attitude that Dolly had, a few cement blocks were removed and the plane made it to the back lawn. The neighbors could attest to the moments when he ran the engine to test it, all the while tied to the clothes line. Dolly lived life to the fullest and took anyone that showed an interest in the current activities along for the ride. His best friend Johnny Picard was present for many of the adventures as were his cousins Pop and Peany Goodwin. His longtime Riverdale neighbor Jim Culver enjoyed fishing with him, snowmobiling and sitting for hours talking in the backyard.

Dolly was a past member of the Civil Air Patrol where he and MaryJane responded to search and rescue missions. He helped maintain the rail trail with the Upper Valley Trailblazers snowmobile club and enjoyed traveling many miles on the trail. Dolly spent countless hours on the Carter Golf course and was a member of the senior league.

Albert was predeceased by his loving wife of 65 years MaryJane (Laramie), brother Verne Dolloph, and sisters: Mona Dolloph, Minnie Dolloph and Joyce Carr.

He is survived by his son John (Debbie) Dolloph of Lebanon, and daughters Sharon (Gary) Parent of Lebanon, and Sinda Dolloph of Enfield. His Grandchildren: Jason & Regan Dolloph of Spokane, Wash.,

Andrew & LIsa Dolloph of Clarksville, Maryland, Julie Parent & Ojan Vafai of San Francisco, Calif., Elisabeth & Christopher Walton of Andover, NH, Darci Wyman & Jessie Piano of West Canaan, Adam Wyman of Enfield.

Great Grandchildren: Mackenzie Piano, Jayden Piano, Cameron Dolloph, Ashley Dolloph and Evelyn Walton.

Per Albert’s request there will be no services. The family wants to thank Dr. Alan Kono and the Heart Failure Team at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center for all their care and support given to Albert.
