Edgar E. Daugherty

Mr. Edgar E. Daugherty, born July 8, 1944, entered into our heavenly home of God Friday, March 10, 2017. 

He was dearly loved by his wife of 49 years, Janet Daugherty; daughter, Sheila Stanford and son-in-law, David Stanford. Other immediate family was his sister, of Acworth, Jenny Daugherty with Charlotte and brother from Greenfield, Ind., Paul Daugherty and Robbie. He is also survived by other beloved family, including cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws, of Indiana. 

He is preceded in death by mother, Miranda Daugherty; and father, Clifford Daugherty. 

He loved all of his friends in Ellijay, and they were his family also. He loved his cherished pets, in heaven with him, Mitzie the poodle, Chiquito, a chihuahua, Dakota, a poodle and Angel the min-pin. 

Though, incoherent, he asked to see a new min-pin puppy, Zorro. Once in hospice, he got that request and opened his eyes to kisses from a new loving pet. Also, this wouldn’t be complete without mentioning a special cat that came to the Daugherty family and wouldn’t go away. Maybe, an angel sent from heaven.

Ed never met a stranger he didn’t love. He loved everybody that crossed his path. He had so many friends that were like his family. He was full of life and loved to go to the beach and everywhere else. Ed and Janet traveled the USA together through the Dakotas, Plains, Grand Canyon, Red Woods ... everywhere they could explore and live life together. God bless our beloved husband, father, friend, patriot, teacher, smart&%$#@ and lover of life.

In celebration of Ed’s life, he requested that a donation be sent in lieu of flowers.

Please make a donation to Peachtree Christian Hospice, 3430 Duluth Park Lane, Duluth, GA 30096 (peachtreechristianhospice.com).
