  • My belated condolences to you Beverly and family on Doug’s passing. I just learned about this yesterday. Although I did not know Doug as much as I did Beverly, i have fond memories of him coming to Park St to visit and swim in Bobby and Barbara’s pool. He was always so friendly with a calm manner to him. such a respectful man! Peace Doug and family!  

  • I have many great memories of the Doherty family. Going to Fenway Park, the summer cookouts, the Doherty pool and the holidays. But, I especially remember all the many sleepovers.Miss “The Godfather “ greatly!
                
    All our love and sympathy from Jeannie and I, Christine, and Kevin to Beverly, Kevin, Eddie, Karen and Ann Marie plus their families.   May God Bless Him!

  • I have known the Doherty family since first grade. I always had Karen or Eddie in my class. Mr. and Mrs. Doherty Have always been my second set of parents. I will always remember Mr. Doherty singing a song to me. What a great voice he had. I always smiled and loved him singing to me. His kids not so much! 
    I hope you will have front row seats to all the sports games. R.I.P Mr Doherty. 

  • I have so many wonderful memories of the Doherty & Pedro families growing up together. I’ll always remember Doug for his famous belly flops in the pool every summer, love of orange popsicles & pistachios and most of all, his love of music. Thank you Doug for your presence in my life. You will be forever missed by all of us who had the honor of knowing and loving you. I hope that you are listening to oldies music with my father in heaven and enjoying an orange popsicle. 

  • I am very grateful & blessed to have shared a friendship with Doug & Bev that spanned over 60 years. We had so many great times together,  from double dating, to our double wedding, to raising our families together. Doug was a loving husband, father & loyal friend. Our countless memories together will be cherished always and will be held close in my heart. All my love to Bev, Kevin, Karen, Eddie, Annmarie & their families. 

  • Bev  Dough will never be forgotten. He will be missed. Love to you. John, Rosemarie and Aaron 

  • I have many memories of Mr. Doherty when I was a teen and young adult. I was usually picking up Karen and sometimes Eddie for an evening or some outing. He had the warmest smile and was always happy to see us kids. He was typically watching a sports game of some sort on TV and seemed to enjoy our conversations even if he was missing the world series due to us chattering teens. He always asked about what we were up to and was a very sincere man. He will be greatly missed by the many who knew and loved him. I’m certain he’ll have front row seats in heaven for the next world series. He certainly deserves it. Rest in Peace Mr. Doherty.

  • Uncle Doug,  that’s how he & Beverly introduced themselves to my Husband & myself.  The first members
    Of Janet Murphy family.  Lovely, friendly couple.  Will miss his always welcoming presence at every family
    Function.  A true Gentleman.  Rest In Peace!
