Adored husband of Adrienne. Cherished father of Linda, Maree, Kathryn and Matthew. Loving pop of Darcy, Ella, Ciara, Jasmine, Luka and Zoe. Much adored brother of Bernice. Loved uncle of Jane and Connor.
John was our much loved uncle who will be fondly remembered by both Peter and I. We loved our visits to Wagga and Coffs with great memories of times spent together during the many school holidays over the years, with the cousins playing in yard, mushrooming in the mud after the rain, and sending pen pal letters to each other. Later visits to the beach up the coast and stopping at the Big Banana. Farewell Uncle John, we will miss you <3
To the Doherty Family
On behalf of classmates and other ex-students who also attended Marsh Brothers High School Kogarah during the same years as John, 1950 – 1957, I have been asked to express our sincere condolences on your very sad loss. John was an “A” student, especially excelling in English, and also represented the school in rugby league. He was a great mate to many at school and after, and will be sadly missed. RUSSELL COLLINS
Although we have lived in different states John was a great mate of mine for the past sixty six years, and of Cheryl for the past 50 years; he will be greatly missed by us.
Our thoughts, deepest sympathy and affection are with you today.
