Patrick P. Dougherty

January 30, 1962 ~ September 15, 2023
He was born on January 30, 1962, a son of the late Kenneth and June (Barnes) Dougherty.  Pat was united in marriage to Mary Ellen O’Neill on April 22, 1995, at St. Thomas Church.  They lived life to the fullest, traveling and gathering friends and making memories along the way, until Mary’s passing on January 26, 2023.  Pat and Mary were members of the Tennessee Squire Association and made many trips to Lynchburg, TN. Pat never met a stranger, only a future friend.  If you knew Pat, you knew he had a strong work ethic.  He felt that if you weren’t proud of the job you did, then you didn’t do it right.  Pat worked for the Town of Kirkland Highway Department for many years. He was a devoted caregiver to his wife Mary and to his property, especially his lawn.  Pat never sat idle and was always willing to help neighbors and friends in need.  He was a bit of a prankster and had a great sense of humor. But he had a big heart and leaves a legacy of love, laughter and great memories behind as he is reunited with his best friend and the love of his life, his wife Mary.

Hollywood icon Rock Hudson dies of AIDS

“On October 2, 1985, actor Rock Hudson, 59, becomes the first major U.S. celebrity to die of complications from AIDS. Hudson’s death raised public awareness of the epidemic, which until that time had been ignored by many in the mainstream as a “gay plague.” Hudson, born Leroy Harold Scherer Jr., on November 17, 1925, in Winnetka, Illinois, was a Hollywood heartthrob whose career in movies and TV spanned nearly three decades. With leading-man good looks, Hudson starred in numerous dramas and romantic comedies in the 1950s and 60s, including Magnificent ObsessionGiant and Pillow Talk. In the 1970s, he found success on the small screen with such series as McMillan and Wife. To protect his macho image, Hudson’s off-screen life as a gay man was kept secret from the public.”

“As his mom Heather Loveland-Button accepts congratulations from the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, young Weston tests the elasticity of the ribbon before it was officially cut to welcome Home Sweet Home Cleaning and Gardening to their new location in Sangerfield. The cleaning business owned by Loveland-Button has an office in the former Farm Credit East building on Route 12 just south of Route 20 and celebrated their one-year anniversary since moving in with a reception. Assemblyman Brian Miller also participated in the celebration.”
