PHIPPSBURG – Warren Nelson Doughty Jr., 57, passed away peacefully on Nov. 5, 2023 with his family at his side after a battle with cancer.

Warren, better known as “Bub” was born on July 28, 1966 to Warren Doughty Sr. and Margaret “Peg” (Rogers) Doughty. He attended Phippsburg Elementary School, and graduated from Morse High School with the class of 1984.

Bub married in 1992, and had two children- a daughter, Jordan, and a son, Dillon. Bub loved moose hunting, spending time at his family camp in Bancroft and enjoying time with loved ones.

Bub was predeceased by his mother, Peg, in 2016; and his brother-in-law, Craig Murray, in 2021.
