We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Levine Memorial Chapel
. ALBANY, NEW YORK
Stuart P. Doling, or otherwise known as "Stu" to his second family of friends in Florida, 82, died peacefully of complications from multiple illnesses in Sunrise on August 9, 2021. Born and raised in Albany by his parents, Evelyn Altus Doling and Irving, Stuart graduated from Milne High School in 1956 and Brown University in 1960. His graduation from Albany Law School in 1963 second in his class(a woman was valedictorian by a narrow margin, which deeply satisfied Stuart), was his second greatest achievement that decade. Stuart married the love of his life, Ann on June 10th, 1962, and the rest, as they say, was history. Stuart spent the majority of his professional life as an attorney for the NYS Division of Corporations, since his desire was to stay married with children and actually have a home and personal life. Stuart boasted about his children, David, Mark, and Jennie frequently, as every proper Jewish parent should. His love for his children always overcame any moments of dissatisfaction. Stuart enjoyed his life to the fullest and with great dedication and focus. The multiple marathons and thousand-mile bicycle rides took their orthopedic toll later in life, but his physical stamina was as impressive as the size of the icicles that would hang from his nose during a frigid run in the winter. His mind and breadth of knowledge was impressive and it opened a curiosity that led to extensive travels, culinary delights, wine, music, books, scuba diving, Jewish faith and culture, completed NYT crossword puzzles in ink, watching sports -ALL sports, including rodeo, and friendships with people from all walks of life. He believed that everyone has value and has something of interest to share, you only need to listen. In addition to his children, Stuart is survived by his sister-in-law, Judy, nieces Amy and Rachel Shapiro; many friends and cousins locally and family of friends in Florida.
Stuart will be buried in Beth Emeth Cemetery in Loudonville on Friday, August 13, at 11:30. All vaccinated friends and family are welcome to attend the ceremony. Please note that masks are mandatory. A casual gathering to receive condolences and to remember Stuart will be held from 4-7 outdoors only at Jake Moon Cafe, 2082 Delaware Turnpike, Clarksville 12041. Unvaccinated people must wear masks. Please donate to a charity of your choice, who needs it more than the family needs flowers.
