Donald Michael Doherty, formerly of Tarrytown, died July 21, 2023, at the age of 74. Born in Tarrytown on October 13, 1948, he was the son of John A. and Bernice V. (Scope) Doherty. Don was a graduate of Sleepy Hollow High School. He went on to serve in the United States Army, including a tour of duty in Vietnam in the late 1960s.
