John Richard Doughty Jr.
This is a childhood photo of John Richard Doughty Jr. born 8-29-1929 in Kingsville, Texas. He worked in the oil business and never had any children of his own. I tracked him down in 2002 only to learn he had passed away within the same year.
His mother was Thelma Walker, a nurse who died in Corpus Christi.
John's nickname was "Dickie".
He had some unclaimed property in Houston. I found out it was a war medal and other documents that had already been destroyed and auctioned off. I promptly called and wrote a letter to the state complaining.
I was probably one of many to raise the issue and now war medals are no longer auctioned off.
