So sorry for your loss. I’m going to miss his stories and him and my dad discussing politics for hours. He was a good man and will be missed.

So many great memories through the years! I remember Doyle as a man that loved his wife and family deeply. I met Doyle in 1973, when I married his brother in law, Mark. His and Georgie’s house was my favorite place to visit, especially during the holidays. There was always a lot of love, fun and of course good food. I’ll always cherish these times. Doyle will be greatly missed, but I know he is happy because he has been reunited with Georgie and one day we’ll all be reunited together. ❤️❤️❤️ Rhonda
