June 24, 1915 ó April 25, 2017
Arthur G. Dougherty, 101, of Pleasant Prairie, passed away at home Tuesday, April 25, 2017, after a long illness.
Arthur was born June 24, 1915, in Oshkosh, the son of the late William Noble Dougherty and Emma (Bloedow) Dougherty, and was the youngest of seven children. On Sept. 19, 1936, he married Sylvia Frances Bleckinger in Oshkosh.
Arthur was preceded in death by his wife, Sylvia; parents, William and Emma; and great-grandchildren, Joshua, Amanda and Grant.
He will be dearly missed by his son, Lee (Kaye) and three grandchildren, Kent (Mary) Dougherty, David A. (Lisa) Dougherty and Francine (Tom) Pompeo. Arthur was a dear great-grandfather "Bapa" to Mitchell (Amanda), Kyle (Angie), Seth (Heather), Connor and Anna; and great-great-grandfather to Jessica, Lily, Ava, Cole, Blake, Cambria and many loving nieces and nephews.
Arthur enjoyed the outdoors, which no doubt stemmed from his strong farming background. He quite frequently participated in horseback riding, golfing and bowling, as well as watching various sports and game shows on TV. Arthur was always there to help friends and relatives with everything from baling hay, cutting lawns, blowing snow and walking their dogs to household projects or whatever else they needed him for.
The family especially thanks Hospice Alliance in Pleasant Prairie for their loving care and support. Also thank you to Casey Family Options for all the Celebration of Life arrangements.
Arthurís celebration of life services will be held at Journey Church (10070 75th St., Pleasant Prairie) on Saturday, May 6. Visitation with the family will begin at 10 a.m. and the service, with the Rev. Dan Remus presiding, will immediately follow at 11 a.m.
Remembrances may be made in the form desired by friends.
