Obituary for Ray "Dick" Doughty Jr.

Ray "Dick"  Doughty Jr.
RAY PARKER DOUGHTY, JR., the youngest son of the late Ray and Mildred Sturgis Doughty, Sr., was born February 28, 1943 near Craddockville, Virginia. On Saturday, October 14, 2017, God peacefully called another soldier home, freeing Ray from all pain or suffering.

Ray, who was affectionately called “Dick,” was baptized at a young age at Shiloh Baptist Church in Painter, Virginia. Later in life, he joined Rising Sun First Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland. He attended the public schools of Accomack County, Virginia and was a graduate of Mary N. Smith High School Class of 1961. After graduation, he later joined the United States Army and served in the Vietnam War. While serving his country, he received several medals, badges, and commendations such as, the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, and a Combat Infantryman Badge.

Ray was a long-time resident of Baltimore, Maryland until deciding to move back home to the Eastern Shore of Virginia. He decided to move to Baltimore, Maryland to be near his brother Arthur, after being honorably discharged from the Army. They both were always traveling, laughing, and eating together, calling each other “Buck.” Ray worked for several decades with the United States Postal Service as a mail carrier. He took pride and joy in walking the streets of Baltimore delivering the mail each day until his retirement.

To know Ray was to love him, he possessed a loving and kind spirit. Always ready to laugh and to sit down to a good home cooked meal. He loved food so much, that eating was one of his favorite activities. If you knew Ray and had a relationship with him, he definitely had a nickname for you. He often would say in a jokingly manner “What you gonna do?” or “Certainly.” He was an avid sports fan; always cheering for his favorite baseball team the Baltimore Orioles or his favorite football team, the Baltimore Ravens.

Preceding him in death was his wife, Paulette Doughty; two brothers, Otis Doughty and Arthur Lee Doughty; a sister, Bessie Sue Smith; and a son, Kevin Pyron. His survivors include: one sister, Almeta Smith of Exmore, VA; three children, Bryant Harmon of Salisbury, MD, Melissa Satchell of Olney, MD, and Richard Pyron of Baltimore, MD; eleven grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; mother-in-law, Dorothy Satchell of Exmore, VA; six sisters-in-law, Francina Doughty of Baltimore, MD, Hythia Doughty of Exmore, VA, Loretta (Ralph) Johnson of Craddockville, VA, Martha Geathers of Orangeburg, SC, Francina (Harry) Chisum of Painter, VA, and Rosa Pyron of Painter, VA; three brothers-in-law, Bernard Pyron of Exmore, VA, (whom he had a “brother-like” relationship with), James Allen (Brenda) Pyron of Atlantic, VA, and Alex (Emma) Satchell of Craddockville, VA; close friend, Agnes Luster; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and friends.
