Larry David Daugherty (73), public servant to the United States of America and the City of Birmingham, went home to be with his Heavenly Father on September 27, 2022, at Birmingham VA Medical Center. Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Richard Houston Daugherty and Mary Frances Hurst; and brother, Roy Daugherty.
He is survived by his wife of 30+ years, Marsha Whalen Daugherty, daughter Heather Morris, grandsons Devin Brock and Jesse Logan Marcrum, brother Gary Daugherty (Becky), nieces Brandy (Jason) Mandeville, Kim (Jeff) Brantley, and four great nieces. He leaves behind his sweet four-legged baby girl, Bella Marie Diva Dog Daugherty- as he lovingly called her at times.
Larry spent his early adult life on a cruise ship with some of his buddies paid for by the US Navy. Larry retired as a Lieutenant from the Birmingham Police Department dedicating and risking his life for “The Magic City” as a detective, polygraph examiner and other positions. Despite his tenure of 30+ years of public service with the Birmingham Police Department, he was determined to sacrifice and commit more of his life as an Investigator within the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Family was a priority to Larry. He enjoyed being with his grandsons and watching them grow up to be young men. He also enjoyed meeting up with his friends for a bite to eat. One of his favorite places was the beach.
Larry never met a stranger. He was a kind and generous person, always willing to help others. He loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As a testimony to his love of his Lord and his wife, they spent quality time together reading the bible in its entirety on several occasions.
A memorial service will be held at Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home in Trussville, Alabama. A private family visitation will be held and followed by a graveside service starting at 2:00 P.M. on October 1, 2022. Pastor Anthony Bellew from The Healing Place will be officiating.
