Paul Daugherty

Paul C. Daugherty, 59, died Monday, Jan. 7, 2019, at Norton Brownsboro Hospital.

He was born Nov. 24, 1959, in Columbus, Ohio, to Hugh Brown Daugherty Sr. and Bessie Lee Green Daugherty. He was raised in Columbus, where he graduated from North High School and then attended Apollo Truck Driving School in Lima, Ohio. Later he joined the Association of Commercial Truck Drivers and became an owner/operator. He was a driving enthusiast and met his wife, Ramona Clark, during his travels through Kentucky. They married and settled in Kentucky. He continued his love with trucking and could always depend on Ramona to be at the house, awaiting his arrival. He attended church at Providence Baptist Church, Ramona’s lifelong congregation, where he later became a member. He also was a member of the OOIDA trucking association. He was runner-up for the Goodyear Highway Hero Award. He was sought out to customize models using his architectural skills. If something could be built into a model, he was the person for the job. He had a great love of trains, die-cast trucks and firefighter collections. Many of his trains were based on real excursions where he and his wife traveled. They had two daughters who passed away in infancy. With the heartache still raw, they researched and found solace in studying foster care. They became involved in The Network, a foster care program, and participated in extensive training, where they were able to foster two children. Soon the two became a family of four. They were very active with their children in several activities.

He is survived by his wife; two children, Chris and Hannah Daugherty, both of Bedford, Kentucky; five siblings, Hugh B. Daugherty Jr. of Orlando, Florida, Tracy L. Daugherty of Columbus, Ohio, Christina L. Daugherty West of Oakwood, Ohio, and Kathrine M. Daugherty Hardin of Galloway, Ohio; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by two daughters, Asliene Nicole and Caitlin Emily Daugherty; and his parents.

There will be a celebration of life at 11 a.m. Friday at Providence Baptist Church. A burial service will follow at Sulphur Cemetery.

Visitation will be at the church Thursday from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. and Friday after 9 a.m. until the service.

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of donations to The Network. Envelopes will be available during the services.

Ransdell Funeral Home in Campbellsburg, Kentucky, has been entrusted with arrangements.
