After serving his country, Sam returned to Pennsylvania to continue working as a mechanic at several Lehigh Valley businesses. In 1982, he ventured out on his own opening Sac’s Citgo Automotive Services on Chestnut St. in Coplay. After closing the station, Sam took up driving tractor-trailers and eventually became a driving instructor for the state of Pennsylvania at Lehigh County Community College. Sam was an avid outdoorsman and long-time member of the Ranger Rod and Gun Club. He enjoyed hunting and fishing including archery. Deer season and opening day were great days as well as numerous trips to Canada for walleye fishing. To Sam’s delight, every grandchild’s first fish was caught with Pop-Pop.
He will be dearly missed by his sons, David Dougherty and wife Valerie of Pittsburgh, Scott Dougherty and wife Lynn of Omaha; sister Mary Genovese and husband Jim of Northampton; five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews and many friends.
