If God ever made a perfect Christian husband, it was Ted. He was always a very special blessing from God to me. He was the best of the best. Ted was very loving, giving, thoughtful, considerate, generous, and helpful to me and all of our family. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He loved his family very, very much, especially, Stacey Gentry Morrison (his granddaughter, whom he called his angel). We had 39 years of wonderful married life. He loved to hunt in Montana and those trips were very special to him. We will always love him and miss him with all our hearts.

Funeral service for Mr. Doughty, 93, of West Monroe, will be held at 1:00pm, Monday, January 27, 2020, in the chapel of Griffin Funeral Home, with Father James Dominic officiating. Interment will follow in St. Paschal Catholic Cemetery.

Private Condolence

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.

I loved going into his shop! Always generous and he liked when i brought my young son into the shop with me. I always found him to be a great guy.
