I just today learned of this. I am so very sorry for your loss. I met Doyle in 2005, when I started driving a school bus for Bill Mead. Doyle would from time to time ride with me on my bus. In our time of driving, Doyle learned I had lived in Greeneville, TN; after that anytime I saw Doyle he always asked me how was Greeneville. He will be greatly missed. I pray God will comfort the family at this time of loss. God Bless.
