  1. Sorry for your loss! I have many fond memories of him and the extended family at grandma Hattie’s. I truly miss those times when we all got together.
    I will be praying for peace and comfort for all of you!

  2. Use to do a lot of work for Doyle years ago when I worked for Mallette Equipment. It was a real pleasure to get to know him. Probably the most mild mannered guy I have ever been around. My best to all of his family.
