The illustration is of my wife’s Uncle John O’Doherty who passed away on December 19, 2008. In 1924, he was born in Buncrana, Ireland and had one brother and two sisters. Later in life he decided to leave for the United States. He had lived many years in America and had served in the military. He had many stories of his adventures while serving in the armed forces. He later married Sheila O’Sullivan from Kilogrin, Ireland. They had many years of happiness until her death. He had moved back to Ireland to enjoy his retirement, where he enjoyed his pets and gardening. He will be missed by his family and friends.
