A fine Christian, Doyle was a Charter Member of St. Andrews United Methodist Church, where he served as the Sunday School Secretary for over 30 years. He was friend to everyone, loved his fellow church members, enjoyed the many years of fellowship, and he also loved to serve others. In his free time, he liked to spend time with his family and his wife. They often worked together in their gardens and many a beautiful bouquet was created from there.
