In memory of
Herbert John Doughty Jr.
Herbert John Doughty, Jr. made his earthly transition on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 at his home. He was preceded in death by his wife Minister Patricia Doughty, son, Dwayne K. Doughty, grandson, Willie Parker Jr. and brother, Alvin G. Doughty. He was born in Plaquemine, LA to the late Carrie P. Doughty and Herbert J. Doughty, Sr. and was a lifelong resident of New Orleans, LA. He attended New Orleans Public Schools and was a member of Lion of Judah International Ministries. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, he became a member of Victory & Power Ministries, Baton Rouge, LA until his return to New Orleans where he continued in the office of deacon at Lion of Judah. He was employed by several companies and retired as a field supervisor for the ARC. He was a man of many talents, but his passion for singing was undeniable. He sang in his churches' choirs, at his leisure, and entertained his family and friends at numerous family gatherings to put it lightly. As a child he displayed his skills as a free-handed artist and found much joy in his renditions of art. In addition to his being an exceptional cook, he was a life-long Dodgers and Colts fan. His devotion to the games made him instrumental in organizing recreational sports for children and adults alike in his neighborhood (Senate Court). At times it was a toss between the activity of the day. He was also on Willie Hall Park's baseball team. Aside from this, he was a great fisherman and was charitable by feeding the neighborhood with his catch. He was clearly a pillar in his community. In later years, he enjoyed watching tennis, especially when the Williams sisters were playing. His greatest joy in life was his family especially his doting daughters; he looked forward to Sunday visits by his children, grandchildren and other family members as they enjoyed the meals he prepared and the songs he sang. He leaves to cherish his memories 5 daughters and 1 son: Minister Karen D. Doughty, Sharon D. Gibson (late Paul), Patricia D. Bernard (Allen), Shelita D. Williams (Clarence), Trina D. Robertson (Don) and Gregory Foley; 9 grandchildren Dwayne, Derry (his long-time caretaker), Cyntrell, Shonta', Monique (Calvin), Domonique (Joel), Cornell Williams, Don Jr., Dajah; and 5 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sisters, Barbara D. Nelson, Francis L. Doughty and Dr. Linda D. White and Debra G. Harris (Henry), a brother Harry J. Doughty, Sr. (Bertha), a maternal aunt, Myrtle M. Green and 4 godchildren Wanda, Darren, Wendy (Peetie), Morgan and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family members and other friends.
