Floyd Everett Doughty, 93, long time resident of Baton Rouge, passed away on February 28, 2020 and was laid to rest at Greenoaks Memorial Park on March 2, 2020. Known as "Doughty" to his friends and co-workers, he studied music at LSU until entering the US Navy, where he served as radioman on submarine-hunter aircraft during World War II.

Doughty retired from Gulf States Utilities (now Entergy) in 1985, with 39 years of service. Also in 1985, he retired from teaching night school classes in electronics repair at the Baton Rouge Vocational-Technical Institute, after 30 years of sharing with innumerable students his deep knowledge of electronics.

Doughty loved spending time at his camp on Grand Isle, and fishing the coastal marshes and offshore.

He is survived by his wife of 72 years, Jacqueline Nelson Doughty of Baton Rouge, and by his son, Floyd E. Doughty, Jr., and wife Margaret of Gause, Texas.
