Doyle was a true patriot and believed in service to his country and to others. He served in the U.S. Navy on a tanker in WWII and again on the USS Manchester in Korea. He retired after 35 years of loyal service from I. E. DuPont De Nemours Company in Victoria, TX in 1985. After retirement he moved to Marionville, MO where he lived until shortly after his wife Betty's death in 1997. In 1999, he fell in love once more and married Dee Dee, a very special lady with whom he shared the remainder of his life.
He was an avid fisherman and loved being outdoors. He never let anything get the better of him, found a 'fix' to anything that was broken and wasn't afraid to live life on his terms. He was well loved by all who knew him.
