Jerry Daughtrey always led with love. He is survived by his wife, Doreen and stepchildren Scott, Jennifer and Melissa, grandchildren Miranda, Madison and Lucas.

He loved fishing, especially with his son-in-law Randall and best friend Al, his granddaughter Miranda and dear friends Patty & Billy. He was always surrounded by friends that were family because of the deep emotional friendships he created including but not limited to Patti Lamb, Gay Taffel, Jessica Wells, Pastor Chris DeLong and Al Drummond. Jerry ran his own plumbing business in the early years and later moved on to head custodian at the Wantagh and Boces schools in Long Island, where he met his “precious” Doreen.
