  1. Mr. Dougherty and my father, Jim Birkin, served as LA City Firefighters together at Station 38 in Wilmington during my childhood years. In those days, there were many family “get togethers” and I have very fond memories of Mr. Dougherty and his family. My condolences to you all. God Bless — Carol (Birkin) Herrera
