Doherty, Stephen R., lifelong resident of Quincy, passed away suddenly on November 6, 2019. Cherished father of James, Kathryn and Annie Doherty all of Quincy. Previous wife and friend of Judy Doherty of Quincy. Beloved brother of Paul Doherty and his wife Margaret, Peter and his wife Cheryl all of Quincy. Uncle of Cristina, Michael and his wife Madeline. Son of the late Paul and Esther (Comeau) Doherty.
Steve was someone who can only be described as a character. He passed away from multiple health problems, most of them related to a life lived by his own rules. From feeding the wild fox outside his house, to piloting his beloved drone around the neighborhood, Steve displayed the same love for the simple things across his daily life. Steve and all his quirks will be dearly missed by both family and friends.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend the Mass of Christian Burial, Wednesday November 13th at 10:30 am in St. Agatha’s Church in Milton. Visiting hours for Stephen are Tuesday, November 12th from 4:00-7:00pm at Hamel-Lydon Chapel & Cremation Services of MA, 650 Hancock St. in Quincy. Burial will be private.
