Eric James Daugherty

MIAMI, Okla. — Eric James Daugherty passed from this life on Monday, Oct. 14, 2013. He was born on April 10, 1971 in Miami, Okla.

He graduated from Wyandotte High School in 1989. He attended NEO A&M from 1990 to 1992. He then transferred to Northeastern State University and attended from 1993 to 1998.

Eric's number one love was performing. Whether he was singing portraying a character in a play, or being a participant in winter guard, Eric enjoyed using his talents to entertain.

Not only was Eric an incredible performer, he was also a spectacular color guard instructor. He had an ability to take a piece of music and turn it into a living story. By sharing his vision with his performers, he was able to create a beautiful masterpiece of movement and color. The floor was his canvas and his students were his magic.

Eric's talents, warm-heart and sense of humor will truly be missed.

Eric is survived by his parents, David and Dee Daugherty; sister, Erin Corbit and her husband, Sean; nephew, Kaleb Daugherty; and three nieces, Sydney, Emalee and Gracie Corbit.

Memorial services for Eric James Daugherty will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at NEO A&M College in the Commons Hall, Miami. Come celebrate Eric's life with us.
