So Long Doc…. RIP John Dougherty

It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of John Dougherty on Saturday morning, February 13, 2016.  He was 83.  Affectionately known as  “Doc”,  John was a life member of Delano Fire Company No. 1 and a very active volunteer in his younger years.  A great friend and neighbor to the author, he will be truly missed by all in Delano.  The flag at the fire house was lowered to half staff yesterday in honor of John.  May God comfort his family and friends during this time of grief.

Requiescat In Pace Doc
