James Thomas Daugherty, age 81 of South Solon, Ohio passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May
7, 2024. He was born May 5, 1943 in Springfield, Ohio, the son of the late Thomas James and Lyda
(Elfrank) Daugherty.

Jim is survived by his loving wife of over 61 years, Dixie (Coe) Daugherty, sons, James Thomas
Daugherty II, Terry Daugherty, and Chris (Lorie) Daugherty, daughter, Ann (Chris) Daugherty,
grandchildren, Jason (Candace), Cassie, Kyle (Megan), Chad (Destiny), and Jerrad (Megan), great-

Throughout the years, James was known for his strong work ethic and unwavering excellence in his
field. While others took days off, Jim would be out looking for his next job. He owned and operated
Daugherty Farm Drainage for many years, working alongside his son. When Jim wasn’t at work, he
enjoyed watching old westerns and hot rod shows. Jim will be deeply missed by all his loving family
and friends. Although he may no longer be with us in person, the memories of his kindness,
strength, and dedication will live on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him.
