Daniel A. Lafferty, CPA, dies

Daniel A. Lafferty, a certified public accountant and world traveler, died Aug. 13 at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson of complications from a stroke he suffered in April.

The longtime Wiltondale resident was 72.

The son of a postal worker and a homemaker, Mr. Lafferty was born in Baltimore and raised in Govans, where he attended St. Mary of the Assumption parochial school.

After graduating from Calvert Hall College High School in 1957, he earned a bachelor's degree in accounting in 1961 from the University of Maryland, College Park.

He began his accounting career in Baltimore for Pricewaterhouse and later the Easco Corp. From 1986 to 1994, he worked for Arcata Graphics.

After retiring in 1994, he worked part time for a decade in the finance department at Loyola High School.

Mr. Lafferty was an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous and had served as treasurer of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of Maryland.

"He had celebrated recently 30 years of sobriety," said his wife of 44 years, the former Agnes Buhman.

He had been a volunteer at the Franciscan Center and was a greeter at St. Joseph Medical Center, assisting patients and their families.

In addition to being an avid world traveler, Mr. Lafferty enjoyed photography and gardening.

He was a communicant of St. Pius X Roman Catholic Church, 6428 York Road, Rodgers Forge, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. Saturday.

Mr. Lafferty is also survived by a son, Mark Lafferty of Baltimore; two daughters, Lydia Curran of Timonium and Kathleen Lee of Chantilly, Va.; a sister, Peggy Amaral of Narragansett, R.I.; and a granddaughter.
