In Memory Of

Mr. Edward

Service Information


Edward B. Docherty passed peacefully, at the age of 73, on Friday, May 27, 2022 with his loving family by his side.  He is survived by his beautiful, beloved wife, Doreen, and his three adored children, Joy, James, and Jill. 

Ed was born on September 4, 1948 and raised in Garden City.  He continued his adult life here after graduating from Lafyette College, where he was a member of the ROTC.  He started his real estate career at New York Life Insurance Company and retired as a commercial broker at Signature Bank.  His thirst for knowledge was insatiable, and loved lively conversation with other erudite characters.  While his own smile and laughter was infectious, he was most elated when the people around him joined him in good spirits. 

Above all else, Ed was a devoted family man who cherished his time with those he loved most.  He treasured traveling with his wife and children, especially to Colorado and the Cayman Islands, where he shared his passion for skiing and SCUBA diving with his family.  They will miss his daily affirmation of “You’re the best.” 

I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road. 

Viewings will be held at Fairchild Sons Funeral Home at 1201 Franklin Avenue, Garden City on Tuesday, May 31 from 2PM-4PM and 6PM-8PM.  The funeral service will take place at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church in Garden City at 11:15AM followed by internment at All Faiths Cemetery
