Shawn A. Doherty

Age 60 of Wilmington, formerly of Bayonne, New Jersey, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at his home.

Born August 3, 1960 in Bayonne, New Jersey, Shawn Adam was a son of the late William and Lenore (Dzimek) Doherty. He was raised and educated in Bayonne and graduated from Bayonne High School. He met Eunice Wlodarski in 1982, and on March 18, 1994, they were married and together made their home in Wilmington. He worked for Exxon Mobil and IMTT in Channahon as a terminal man. He retired after 42 years of service, and made many lifelong friends there who he remained close with after retirement. Shawn was a member of the NRA, and will be remembered for his love of family. He was a proud Papa to his grandchildren whom he was over the moon, for and they adored him. Shawn was fortunate enough to marry his best friend of 38 years, Eunice, who will miss him dearly and be lost without him. “RIP Geek”
