Remembering Glen Doherty, Killed in U.S. Consulate Attack in Libya

Many in the North End join in mourning the death of Glen Doherty, among the Americans killed in this week’s attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya. Glen’s father, Ben Doherty, was a recent resident of the Prince Building, writer for the Post Gazette and longtime companion of North Ender Anne Devlin Tagliaferro. Ben’s health now keeps him largely confined to his home in Charlestown.

Glen Doherty, 42, grew up in Winchester and was a frequent visitor to the North End while his father lived here. He was a Navy SEAL before working for a private security company that took him to the U.S. Consulate in Libya. His father, Ben, was the son of Irish immigrants, former boxer, boxing commissioner and stockbroker.  Ben is interviewed by TV7 here and there is also a tribute written by Glen’s brother at the Herald. In the clip below, Glen’s sister reacts.
