Edward Paul Doyle, 60, of Nashua, passed away peacefully after a lengthy illness at the Hospice House located in Merrimack, New Hampshire on Monday, March 26, 2018. He was born on December 8, 1957 to the late Paul H. and Lillian F. (Markiewicz) Doyle in Nashua NH. Born and raised in Nashua, he was a graduate of the Nashua High school class of 1977. During his senior year, he was the State Wrestling Champion and won Athlete of The Year 1977, and was also a member of the National Club. As a devoted skier, Ed loved to travel the world and ski new places, but always called Cannon Mountain in Franconia Notch his favorite place to ski with his friends and family. He also enjoyed deep-sea fishing and traveled to many locations throughout the United States to pursue his passion. Ed additionally enjoyed other outdoor activities such as golf and was truly blessed to have many friends in his life and appreciated all the time he spent with all who loved him. He is survived by his sister Cindy Doyle of Nashua, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. A celebration of life will be held on Friday April 6, 2018 from 12-3pm at the Alpine Grove 19 S.

From fishing at the lake to golfing on the Cape to skiing (or having a beer) at Cannon you were always ready to go. If someone needed help or was short on the bill you were always there to make sure no one took the hit. You were one of the most elegant skiers I ever had the blessing to ski with, be with, and have for a friend. I've missed you and will miss you something fierce. See you on the mountain buddy........

We lost touch over the years but I so often remember the "Little Florida" gang and what a great childhood we had. I think that was in most part because of the awesome friends we all became and you were such a big part of that. My sincerest sympathy to you Cindy and my heart felt wishes for peace and comfort in the days ahead.

Forever the consummate athlete, you lived life with zest and passion and for that you will always be remembered. You were loved by many and if you were cared for by my dear friend, Henriette, at the Hospice House, you were already in the hands of an angel. Rest in Peace, Lesley (Craven) Brookes, Class of '76

Big Ed! As we so affectionately referred to him in his school boy days. He was a force to be reckoned with when it came to wrestling. He helped lead us to a State Championship in 1976, as he captured the State title in the Unlimited weight class himself. As I recall, it came down to the final match of the tournament and Ed did what he always did, he came up big with another win! I knew Ed since our Pop Warner football days. On rare occasions Ed would speak of what my father meant to him. For some reason the other Pop Warner football coaches didn't want to give Ed a chance, but my father did. That vote of confidence really touched Ed's heart! I would run into Ed from time to time around town and we would always stop and talk. Like others have said, it was as if nothing had changed, like you hadn't skipped a beat, when you ran into Big Ed. He was a great guy to be around and he always enjoyed catching up with everyone about how life was treating them. It was a real shock and a sad moment to hear of his demise. He was way too young to leave us. My condolences to his family and to all he knew him. Ed will be missed, but not forgotten!

Ed will be mourned by many. He was very kind, friendly and funny.
His life was cut too short.
My sympathies to Cindy and also to Ed’s extended family and friends.
It’s heartwarming to see all the photos of Ed traveling the world and creating memories.
He was a good man, and we will miss him.

To my Good friend Eddie, Thank you so much for all the memories like going to Boston to our favorite Pizza joint, the cookouts by the pool and the trips up north. We had a blast and lots of laughs. You will be missed until we meet again. Rest in Peace Eddie!

You were like a brother to me no matter what time and distance went by. No matter when we ran into each other it was laughter and good times all over again. Thanks for the honor of knowing you for a lifetime. Rest in peace my friend.
