Obituary Condolences

DOUGHERTY John Vincent Dougherty Jr., 36 of Jacksonville, Fl was unexpectedly taken from us on Sunday June 16, 2013. John was born on December 16, 1976 to John and Jeanie Dougherty in Camp Hill, PA. John graduated from Exeter High School in Reading, PA, and attended Penn State University where he studied mechanical electrical engineering. He moved to Jacksonville in 2002 and was currently working at Publix Super Markets Inc. John will always be remembered as a guy who would never say no to a friend in need, who was known as Mr. Fixit and could build or repair anything. His knowledge was endless and his ability to figure out and solve any problem was uncanny. His passion for nature, the beach and animals defined him. John always said, I love animals because they never judge you and they offer unconditional love . To all who knew him and to all the lives he touched he will be forever missed. His love for people and life, his smile, his amazing ability to make anyone laugh, the stories and memories we all share will always be in our hearts. He was the most wonderful friend, son, brother and uncle anyone could ask for. John would often say, life is one big cycle of beginnings and endings, and when I go, celebrate my life. John lived life to the fullest and always found the positive in every situation. Tomorrow will be a new day, and that s the beauty of it, nothing lasts forever. John is survived by and will be forever remembered by his best friend and dad, John Dougherty Sr., his mother Jeanie Dougherty, his two sisters, Kathleen Klingaman and Suzanne Winkler, his two brothers Rick Klingaman and Brad Winkler, his girlfriend Emily Atkinson, his four nieces, Megan, Leah, Ava and Grace, his two nephews Owen John and Bradley Jay, his fourteen Uncles and Aunts, his forty-six cousins, and countless friends.
