Dan Dougherty

Daniel "Danny" Dougherty

April 5, 1958 - October 27, 2020




It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of our brother, Daniel "Danny" Dougherty, 62 of Salina, KS. Danny passed away Tuesday, October 27th . He was born April 5, 1958 to Virgil and Dorris (Cooper) Dougherty whom he now joins in Heaven.

He was the youngest of five children and leaves behind one brother Jimmy "Doc" Dougherty and his wife Marsha of Salina; sister Betty Hewitt and her husband Kay of Salina; sister Barb Atchison and her husband Don of Mesa, AZ and sister Bonnie Daley and her husband Dan of Salina.

Danny was a fantastic Uncle and treated his niece and nephews as his own. Left to grieve him are his nephew Bill Hewitt and his wife Shelly of Carl Junction, MO and their children Richard and Rachael; his niece Crystal Trimble of Mesa, AZ and her children Jaycie and Kinley; his nephew Travis Atchison of Mesa, AZ and his children Shayla and Slade; nephew Brandon Daley of Chicago, Il, and niece Jennie Otter of Salina, KS.

Danny loved spending time with family and enjoyed any family get-together. He loved football and was a huge Chiefs fan. His favorite thing to do was to watch football with his brother Jimmy and he was never happier than those times he spent with him.

Danny was so kind, big-hearted, generous and never had a bad thing to say about anyone. If you were his friend, you were his friend for life, and he had many friends. Danny worked for Beechcraft for almost 30 years and continued many of those friendships.

Danny was a strong Christian and wanted everyone to know Jesus as their personal savior. We were so blessed to have him as a brother and will miss him every day until we meet with him again in Heaven.

A graveside service will be held at Gypsum Hill Cemetery, on his birthday, April 5, 2021 at 2 p.m.
