Biography

Terry R. Doughty, 62, of Waterloo died Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at the Cedar Valley Hospice Home.

He was born September 16, 1955 in Waterloo, the son of Gary R. and Barbara J. Fauser Doughty. Terry married Juanita Ann Comito on April 27, 1985 at Lord of Life Lutheran Church, Waterloo.

He graduated from Hudson High School in 1974. He obtained his AA degree from Ellsworth Community College in 1976 and earned a BA in Business from Dallas Baptist University in Dallas, TX. He worked in Fleet Service for American Airlines in Dallas for 20 years before retiring in 2006.

Terry was a faithful member of Trinity Episcopal Parish. He was also member of Transport Workers Union (TWU).  After retiring he volunteered at Cedar Valley Bike Coalition. He also volunteered repairing bikes for Sacred Heart Church to donate to the community and others.  He always joked that he "worked for beer" when asked what they owed him. He loved to ride RAGBRAI, riding in it 20 times starting in 1996. Terry liked a good joke and laughed with his whole body.

Terry was a lover of music, such as James Taylor and Dave Mathews Band. He had an awesome vinyl record collection. He was a craft beer fanatic. He was considered to be a late night beer philosopher and connoisseur. He also liked to spend his time on bike trails. Terry would often say, "I like to bike because I feel like I'm flying." 

Terry is survived by his wife; his children, John (Tiffany) Doughty and Elizabeth "Izy" Doughty, both of Waterloo; two grandchildren, Vincent & Peter Doughty; parents, Gary and Barbara Doughty of Hudson; sister, Deb (John) Lacock of Monticello; brothers, Jeff (Linda) Doughty of Cedar Falls and Steve (Michelle) Doughty of Omaha, NE; and his hijo, José Hernandez of Caborca, MX.

    I remember the day Terry came to Hudson  in the 3rd grade.   We all grew up together.  Life was good growing up in small town Iowa.  I smile thinking about you.  RIP Terry.

    THE nicest friend I have ever known. I learned so much from Terry, mostly how to be a better person. We rode many miles, drank many beers and we loved all of them. Rest in peace dear friend. Our deepest sympathy to Ann, John, abd Izy.

    Terry was one of the most joyful people I have known. Every time I saw him at Trinity in Waterloo, he had a smile on his face, and he was happy to share a hearty laugh with one and all. Truly, he brought light to all who knew him, and it was obvious how much he adored his family. Ann, John, and Izy, I know you will miss you dear husband and father, as will all in your growing family, but hold him forever in your heart, remember him at his happiest, and know that you gave him a wonderful, love and laughter-filled life. He will never be more than a thought, a dream, or a prayer away, and he will be so happy to see you again some day as you wake up together in the next life.

    Warm thoughts to the Doughty/Comito family from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. 

    Terry was a fine man, fun, intelligent and thoughtful.   Neil and I had a grand time on our visit those years ago. They remain brightly in my memory, as do many random moments with Terry.  One such I still chuckle about which Terry told me:  Izy and Neil were skyping one day, Terry walks by Izys computer screen in the Doughty kitchen, says "Hi Neil!" to the screen, and Neil replies "Hi Terry!"  A 1,500 mile Hi-5!...  Great stuff.   

    RIP Terry, a good friend to so many.

    I know I already gave you a hug on Facebook, Izy, but I feel like I should write something here too.  I only visited that one time, but I remember Terry as a fun guy to be around.  As someone who has lost loved ones before, I can only imagine the pain you must be going through.  I'm really sorry for your loss and I can only hope things improve for you in the days to come.
