I’m going to miss Uncle Doyle’s jokes and our monthly talks about current events and random things that made him laugh. He was always there when I needed someone to talk to and gave the best advice! Since my dad passed away, my Uncle Doyle stepped in for his little brother and made sure I was ok.

You are loved and missed, thank you for being the amazing person that you were. LOVE YOU FOREVER ❤️ Your niece Christi.

You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your father and grandfather. I enjoyed being around him. He was always a great reminder of family and Texas during the four + decades I spent on the East Coast. He would always flash his great smile. He was a good and caring man. TRUE PVITE!
