On Monday, December 24th 2018, Daniel Dougherty, a hard working family man, passed away at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Dan was 1 of 3 children, born on March 25th 1947, to Viconda and William Dougherty. He was a Lake Placid Native, where he served his community in several ways. He was a volunteer firefighter in his early adult years, worked for the village highway department, and then worked under Hollrock Concrete Inc, until retiring. Dan also served in the US Navy from 1964 to 1968. While dedicating most of his life to work, he still found time to relax, and visit with friends at Bowl winkles. While he had an immense love for his family, he also dedicated his last few years to caring for Buddy, a rescue cat. Dan was predeceased by his partner Connie Hinkley, and his sister Doris Hare. He is survived by his two daughters, Karin Graham and Jodie Ayers, their spouses Robert Graham and Brock Woodruff; his son, Daniel Dougherty; his sister, Deloris Dougherty; his grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and great granddaughter. There are no calling hours. A gathering in Dan's honor will be held at a later date. The M.B. Clark, Inc. funeral home in Lake Placid, NY is in charge of arrangements.
