Jeffrey Craig DOUGHERTY, age 43, was born September 30, 1966 in Maryville, Missouri to Jerry and Ellen DOUGHERTY, and departed this life with family by his side on January 4, 2010. Jeff, known as "Jeva" to family and friends, attended school in Kellerton, Iowa, Faucett, Missouri, and Malvern, Iowa. He graduated from Malvern High School in 1985. He earned a B.S. in Education Degree from Northwest MO State University in Maryville in 1990. He taught and coached at Mound City, Missouri, Bedford, Iowa, Spokane, Missouri, and Macks Creek, Missouri. He was also women’s assistant basketball coach for a year at Kansas City, Kansas Comm. College. In addition, he worked in the districts of Wheatland, MO and Weaubleau, MO. For the past nine years, Jeff had sold real estate in the Branson area and also worked in other types of sales positions.

Jeff loved hunting pheasant and quail, fishing, the Kansas City Royals, Miami Dolphins and Iowa Hawkeyes. Most of all, Jeff thrived on having get-togethers with family and friends. Spending time and watching a game with family was what Jeff enjoyed most. His great disposition endeared him to everyone as he never seemed down or negative. His original sense of humor and positive attitude quickly turned acquaintances into friends. Jeff accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior, and was a member of the First Baptist Church, Augusta, KS. He kept his religious beliefs private as he did most of his personal life.

Jeff had recently found, and spent treasured time, with the love of his life, Julie MARLOW. He adored Julie and considered her children his own. He especially took to heart the time he spent with the two "whos," as he referred to the youngest two, Max and Olivia.

Jeff is preceded in death by his uncle, Don DOUGHERTY, grandparents Marion and Ruth DOUGHERTY, and grandparents Roscoe and Luella DUNN. He adored his grandparents and cherished the time they spent together.

As a member of the Malvern Class of 1985, Jeff was one of 24 classmates who were very close. He never got over the loss of Michelle, Mary and Cindy, beautiful young classmates whose lives were taken in a car wreck shortly before their high school graduation.

Jeff is survived by his parents, Jerry and Ellen DOUGHERTY, brother Greg and wife Kelly, brother Randy and wife Beccie, and nieces Amanda, Megan, Caitlin, and Ella, and nephews Brenden, Andrew and Brett; girlfriend Julie MARLOW and Lauren, P.J., Max and Olivia, to which he had a very close relationship with all.

Jeff cherished the time he spent with his nieces and nephews, keeping them laughing and being the understanding uncle. The DOUGHERTY family and friends have a permanent hole in their lives, but each can take comfort in wonderful memories of time spent together.

Jeff generously gave of his body to Mid-America Transplant Services in St. Louis, MO. This donation can help up to 50 people improve their quality of life.
