Dougherty, William Bernard


William Bernard Dougherty, III, 62, a resident of Rowlett, TX, passed away on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at Lakepointe Medical Center.  Born February 6, 1951, Bill lived in Texas his entire life.

He graduated from Sunset High School in 1969, and sang for four years with the Westminster Youth Choir of the Oak Cliff Presbyterian Church.  Bill was a life-long student, always eager to learn something new – and whatever he tackled, he became accomplished at.  He studied music at North Texas State University. He was a self-taught photographer, then learned networking and building computer systems, eventually starting and operating two businesses: Custom Web Solutions and Config Dot Systems.

He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Theresa, daughters Eva and husband Chris Basquez, Devin and fiancé David McElroy, Christy Dougherty, and grandchildren Chloe, Keegan, Kaleb, Joshua and Alex.  His siblings include sister Susan and husband James Etheridge, Pam Dougherty, brother Robert Dougherty and wife Sharon, and Tim Dougherty and wife Roxane, along with numerous nieces and nephews. 

Services will be held on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. at Laurel Land Cemetery, 6000 S. R.L. Thornton Freeway, Dallas, Tx 75232. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, friends make a donation in Bill’s name to the charity of your choice.

Please send the family condolences on this website.

I was so sorry to read that Bill has passed on. Although I haven’t seen him in many years, we had many great times together during the 80’s and 90’s. He was always so happy and smiling and pleasant. We must have had a thousand laughs together! Bill was a fine gentleman that I will always remember with fondness and respect. May GOD bless and comfort all of his family and loved ones.

Donna Thompson Johnson says:

I was very saddened to hear today that Bill had passed away. I went to Sunset (1968 Grad), and Bill was a dear friend during that time…I dated one of his friends…Dickie Dunn…and Bill was always there when I needed a shoulder, as one often does when experiencing ‘young love.’ He was a dear person. We connected on f/b many months ago and I was glad…doing so brought back great memories of high school life. My deepest sympathy to Theresa and all of Bill’s family. He was one of the good guys…no doubt…
