Aug. 14, 1940 — Aug. 15, 2014

Chuck Doty passed away at home on Aug. 15, 2014, at the age of 74. He was born in Davenport Wash., but lived in numerous places across the country before making Fairfield, Calif., his home for the last 22 years.

Immediately following his high school graduation, Chuck served several years active duty in the U.S. Navy and was honorably discharged in 1964 as 3rd Class Petty Officer (E-4). He then attended and graduated from Washington State University only to continue his education at Cornell University, receiving his Ph.D. in Vegetable Crops and Weed Control. During this time he met and married the love of his life, Kathy, in 1968. After a long and well-respected career in agricultural science, in 1999 Chuck helped found and has since been co-owner of the successful company SynTech Research. At this point he was able to travel the world with people he loved doing work he was passionate about.

Even with all of these accomplishments, Chuck would never boast. He was a humble and honest man who shared his wisdom with the world through the strength of his character. He was a mentor to many and was always willing to help those in need. Above all, he will be remembered as a selfless, kind and generous man who taught by example with the way he lived his life.

Chuck was an active member and faith-filled servant at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church for more than 20 years. He also found joy working with and encouraging young minds. His most cherished hobby, which brought him both peace and delight, was working in his garden and sharing his harvests with friends.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 46 years, Kathy Doty; loving daughter, Heather Duarte; brother, Larry Doty; and sister, Barbara Root.

A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. on Wednesday Aug. 27, 2014, at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 1600 Union Ave., Fairfield, Calif. Memorial donations may be made to Sutter Care at Home, 4071 Port Chicago Hwy., Suite 120 Concord, CA, 94520 (Note on check: Concord Hospice), or to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 1600 Union Ave. Fairfield, CA 94533 (Note on check: Preschool Renovation).
