Doyle and I were childhood and continued to be friends through High School. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. My Sincere Condolences to his family. He and I spent many afternoons in the old swimming hole in town creek and going to fetch that old milk cow. May God Bless Him!!

Aunt Pat and Susan - I am so sorry for your loss and am praying for you both. Uncle Doyle was a kind man who will be missed by many, but especially by his family. I have many fond memories of him from all of our family reunions, Christmas gatherings and other visits. Love you both!

I too, have so many fond memories of Uncle Doyle, spending time with him, Susan and Aunt Pat. Uncle Doyle was a reserved man, gentle and kind in every way that I ever experienced. Susan knows this better than me, but Uncle Doyle could speak, without ever opening his mouth. He could speak volumes with his eyes!!!
My sister LeeAnn, my mom and dad L.B. and Jane Owen, and myself were fortunate to be able to spend quality time with Uncle Doyle, Aunt Pat and Susan.
Uncle Doyle treated me more as a Son, rather than a nephew!! He never spoke a harsh word to me at all. The one thing I ALWAYS felt from Uncle Doyle was TRUST!!!! I always felt like he trusted me, and for me there is no greater honor.
May you rest in Peace Uncle Doyle, and THANK YOU for the many good times!!!!!!!

So many great childhood memories with Uncle Doyle, Aunt Pat and Susan! Vacations together, overnight weekends in Cary or Burlington, holiday fun and more. I’ll never forget Susan and I riding in lawn chairs in the back of his camper shell truck on the way to the mountains. Uncle Doyle treated me like a daughter when we were together, and Susan was definitely more like a sister than a cousin as we grew up together. His quiet and reserved, yet kind and giving, nature will always be remembered and the memories cherished. Rest In Peace, Uncle Doyle, and much love to you, Aunt Pat and Susan.❤️
