Thomas Charles Daugherty

February 17, 1960 — May 26, 2021

Thomas (Tom) Charles Daugherty passed away May 24th, 2021, at his home in Missoula, Montana, of natural causes.

Tom was born on February 17, 1960, in Santa Clara, California. He was raised in San Jose, California where his parents Lynn and Gilbert Wayne Daugherty were greatly involved in his school and athletic programs, particularly high school football where he excelled. He graduated from Yurba Buena High School on the south side of San Jose in 1978. He relocated to Pendleton, Oregon in 1981, where he met and married his first wife Nancy Phillips. They spent fifteen years together spanning three states. Together they share two daughters, Holly and Rachael, and a son, Wayne. His work for Les Schwab Tire moved the family to Deer Lodge, Montana. Tom and Nancy’s marriage ended in 1997. Tom eventually moved to Missoula, Montana where he met and married Karen Truscelli. Tom and Karen traveled to Alaska on two separate occasions to co-chef wedding receptions for Tom’s daughters. This marriage also ended. Tom spent over 20 years working in Sales and Service for Les Schwab Tire Company. He retired in 2019.

Tom is survived by three children: Holly (Nick) Bosch, Rachael (Shane) Holland, and Wayne Daugherty; four grandchildren, Lincoln, Travis and Desiree Bosch and Silas Holland; his parents, Gilbert Wayne and Lynn Daugherty; three siblings Susan Wakefield, Tammy (Chip) Whiting, and Michael (Misty) Daugherty and many nieces and nephews. Tom’s brother Larry Campbell-Daugherty preceded him in death.

Tom was a hard-worker and a good provider for his family. He had a sense of humor, loved his family, and took great pleasure in hunting, fishing, listening to music, and cooking. He was a hard core fan of Bob Dylan, the San Francisco 49ers and San Francisco Giants. His fascination with owls was evident throughout his home. He enjoyed traveling to Alaska where his children live, to visit, cook up some grub, and golf with his son.

It is best to end this with a quote from Bob Dylan: "You should always take the best from the past, leave the worst back there and go forward into the future."
