Michael Doherty

Doherty, Michael “Bowl,” at 58 years, in Peabody formerly of Revere & Everett, July 10th, 2013, beloved husband of 16 years to Judith F. “Judi” (Dodge).  Cherished father to: Peter A. Morand Jr. & Jillian E. Morand both of Peabody, Jessica F. Perreault & her husband Joseph of Haverhill.  Dear brother of: William E. Doherty of Ft. Pierce, Fl., Russell E. Doherty & his wife, Linda of Revere & Susan J. Rothwell & her husband, Stephen of Hanson, MA.  Also lovingly survived by his granddaughter, Raegan F. Perreault, his mother-in-law, Theresa (Hanright) Dodge of Peabody & her late husband, Ralph E. Dodge.  Brother-in-law of: R. Steven Dodge of N.H., Karen DiSabatino & her husband, James of Georgetown, Michael T. Dodge & his wife, Rosemary, & Marla Dodge all of Peabody.  Many nieces & nephews also survive him.  Family & friends are invited to attend the funeral from the VERTUCCIO & SMITH HOME FOR FUNERALS, 773 Broadway (rte. 107), REVERE on MONDAY, July 15, at 9:30AM followed by a funeral mass in Immaculate Conception Church, (corner of Beach St. & Winthrop Ave.), REVERE at 10:30AM.  Visiting hours are Sunday only 4–8pm.  Parking available left of the funeral home.  Interment is private.  Born in Winthrop, he was raised & educated in Revere & lived here for over 25 years before moving to Everett for a brief time & to Peabody for the past 16 years.  Michael was an alumnus of Revere High School, Class of 1973.  He also was an alumnus of Bunker Hill Community College, Class of 1978.  He worked within the banking community most of his career in credit, spent 20 years at Citizens’ Bank & then went over to TD Bank of Burlington as a credit manager.  In 2007, Michael was struck down with a massive stroke, leaving him with severe effects with his motion & generalized function.  However, in spite of the insidious attack on his body, he pushed forward & regained enough mobility to allow him to live a most normal life.  Michael had a special nickname, “Bowl” which alludes to his immense worship & interest in the “Patriots” & “Red Sox.”  Michael was an avid member of the “Timebank” at Time Exchange of the North Shore & a member of the Adaptive Sports’ Association at Boston’s Spaulding Rehab & also a member of Paul Lydon’s Aquatic Center of Danvers.  He also was a member of the Board of Directors of the Peabody Rent Control Board.  As a young man, he was an active member of the former 27th Lancers-Immaculate Conception Reveries of Revere.  Michael’s strong refound faith in God & the Catholic Church inspired him to persevere beyond all expectations of the medical community & allowed him not only to beat the odds but to become a beacon of hope for many victims of severe stroke disease.  In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the American Heart & Stroke Assoc., 20 Speen St., Framingham, Ma. 01701-4688.
