Patrick was born December 2, 1955, in Yankton, SD to Richard and Elizabeth J. (Zmolek) “Betty Jeane” Dougherty. He graduated from Ainsworth High School in 1974, Wayne State College in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science and Business Administration degree, and the University of South Dakota in 1986 with a Masters of Business Administration degree. Patrick met Marie Ann Souchek in Long Pine, NE when he was drumming in a band from Ainsworth; they were married on June 9, 1979, in Deweese, NE.

 

Most of Patrick’s business career was in the carton manufacturing business in a variety of roles. He worked for Malnove Inc. in Omaha, NE, Box Board Pkg. in Norwalk, OH, and Great Plains Pkg. (now Paperworks) in Hastings. Patrick also worked in finance and a variety of other positions over the years. He retired in December 2021 to enjoy his hobbies and time with his wife.

 

Patrick was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Hastings and Elks Club #1790 in Ainsworth. He enjoyed hunting turkey, pheasant, and deer, boating on the river, his dogs Shadow and Bud, spending time in the Sandhills with friends and family, golfing, watching baseball, and traveling. Patrick enjoyed conversations with family and friends with a beverage; he was honest to a fault, if you didn’t want the truth, you shouldn’t have asked. 

 

Patrick was preceded in death by his parents; in-laws, Edwin and Marian Souchek; and brother, Dan Dougherty.
