Patrick Ryal Dougherty, 46, went to be with the Lord on Sept. 15, 2019. He was a loving and caring person that would do anything for anyone. He was voted best personality in his high school graduating class of 1991 from NSA, and he continued to exhibit these traits throughout his life. He enjoyed photography and often captured unexpected moments in life that others often passed by.

Ryal is survived by his parents, David and Barbara Dougherty; brothers, Timothy D. Dougherty and Sean M. Dougherty and wife, Cortney, of Kansas City, Kan.; nieces and nephews, Allane, Cole, Beckett and Tate Dougherty; and aunt, uncles, and cousins.

A visitation will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019, in the R.W. Baker & Co. Funeral Home and Crematory, 509 W. Washington St., Suffolk. Memorial donations may be made out to Suffolk Humane Society, 412 Kings Fork Road, Suffolk, VA 23434 or to OBX SPCA, PO Box 2477 Manteo, NC 27954. Condolences may be registered at
