NORTH JACKSON – Bradley Craig Daugherty, 49, went to be with his Lord and Savior on March 29, 2018, after a short battle with cancer.

He was born in Youngstown, on Oct. 10, 1968, to Daniel and Charlene (Marsh) Daugherty.

He graduated from Jackson-Milton High School in 1987. In the year 2000 he graduated with highest honors from ITT, earning his degree in Electronic Engineering Technology. He quickly began his career as a Field Service Engineer for Healthtronics out of Austin, Texas in 2000. He joined Farmers National Bank in 2003, becoming an Assistant Vice President and the Manager of their Columbiana branch. He was passionate about his job and was committed to his staff as a mentor and friend.

He was on the Board of Directors of the Columbiana Chamber of Commerce and was the President of the Mahoning County Lion’s Club. Brad was proud of his fundraising efforts for those in need. He was an avid fan of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Browns, Indians and The Ohio State Buckeyes. Brad had a sharp wit and keen sense of humor and was known to play the occasional practical joke on an unsuspecting victim. His laughter was infectious (even at his own jokes). “Brad was funny.”

His interests varied, from music concerts, fantasy football, golf, playing guitar, and classic sitcoms, to mystery escape rooms and traveling on cruises. The backyard tag football games with his brothers and nephews were the highlight of his family gatherings.

He leaves behind his beloved wife, Lori and their cats, Meowy and Kitty.

Awaiting his arrival at the “Rainbow Bridge” is his deceased best friend, his golden retriever, Kayla.

Brad is survived by his wife, Lori Daugherty; his parents, Daniel and Charlene Daugherty; his sister, Lori Edwards; his brothers, Joseph (Lisa) Daugherty and Eric (Patti) Daugherty; his “extended family-in-marriage,” Eleanor Haddix, Aaron (Cheri) Smith and Rick (Melissa) Haddix; nieces, Kori, Melanie, Kaylee, Marybeth and Tabitha; and nephews, Rayce, Andrew and Will.

Per Brad’s request there will be no funeral services.

There will be a “Celebration of Life” the Summer of 2018, date TBD.

From a grateful customer

“I only knew Brad for a short time as I went to Damascus Farmers Bank and he was sent to Columbiana - he was always so helpful and kind and when I would be in Columbiana at the doctors I would always think "I should stop in to see Brad" - he became just that kind of friend, you were comfortable with him. My thoughts and prayers will be with his loving family for the months ahead because you will feel his loss for some time. We were all better off for knowing him. ”
