Corinna - Danny Doherty, 72, passed away Monday, June 10, 2019 at his home after a courageous 7 year battle with cancer. Danny was being cared for by his family with the great help from Hospice.

Danny loved the outdoors in his youth and through his whole life. As a teen he worked at the Snowflake Canning Factory in Corinna. Later he was employed at Eastland Woolen Mill and also worked for Byron Henderson. Finally he started the job he loved the most as a self-employed woodsman.
