Philip Adams Dolan

January 18, 1953 — May 19, 2021

DOLAN, Philip Adams 68, of Maynard, MA, beloved father of Philip Patrick Dolan and Timothy Adams Dolan, passed away on May 19, 2021 at his home.

Phil was the son of the late Philip Bernard and Elaine Margaret (Adams) Dolan, and the brother of the late Kristen Elaine Dolan. He was born in Winchester, Massachusetts and was raised primarily in Woburn and Acton, MA.

Phil is also pre-deceased by his loving Aunts and Uncles, George and Teresa Adams of Winchester, MA, Linnie (Dolan) Konecnik of Flushing, NY, and Carroll Dolan of Lexington, MA.

Phil leaves behind close cousins and their families. Maternally, George W. Adams IV and his wife Stacy of Millbury, MA, Matthew F. Adams and his wife Joanne of Merrimack, NH, the late James D. Adams and his surviving wife Tracy of Hudson, MA, and Bill Adams and his wife Lauren of Boynton Beach, FL.

Phil was a decades-long member of the New England Carpenters Local #475. He had a passion for downhill skiing, and in his younger years frequently traveled to Europe where he placed in the top percentage in professional ski races. After raising two beautiful boys, Phil resurrected his passion for vintage drums. He loved playing with his bandmates at various venues in Boston and surrounding areas. And he was good at it.

Phil made many friends all over the world. When people met him, they kept in touch. His "old school" nature was endearing. He will be missed by many.

A memorial service is being planned for family and friends who wish to attend. Details are forthcoming.
