George Walter Doering

George Walter Doering, 83, passed away suddenly on July 22, 2019. George was born on December 10, 1935 in French Camp and lived in Butte County for the last 80 years. He graduated from Biggs High School in 1954. 

George was a carpenter by trade, but most knew him for his delicious mandarins. He and his wife owned and operated Doering’s Mandarins for the past 55 years, building the business from scratch.  

George was a religious man who was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Gridley. He was a devoted family man that touched everyone he met. His warm smile and twinkle in his eye made you feel instantly like family.

He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Patricia, and their children, Mark, Ken, Terri, Lisa, 22 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and sister Janet. He was preceded in death by his parents, Emil and Betty; and daughter Tammy.
