Thomas was born January 11, 1959, in Philadelphia, PA, to Paul and Mary Dougherty. Thomas grew up in Wallingford, PA, where he made many fond memories and lifelong friendships.

In 1991, Thomas started his own insurance business in Media, PA, alongside his brother, Christopher. Aside from being an extremely hard worker, Thomas was a loving father, son, brother, cousin, uncle, and friend.

He is survived by his daughter, Mickenzie Dougherty (Richard Buzza), brother, Kevin Dougherty, sister, Karen Williams (Justin Williams), many cousins, his stepchildren Kristine, Lindsay, and David, his nieces and nephews, and many many friends.
