    I am so sorry to learn of Doyle’s passing. Doyle and my late mother were neighbors before my mom passed in 2016. Doyle was so good to visit mom, and ask about her. Doyle was a kind, loving, and friendly person. I remember him paying his respects to the family at my mom’s viewing, and he took it hard. That told me just how much he loved my mom as his neighbor. I pray for strength, peace, and comfort for Doyle’s family.

    Am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed Doyle’s humor and friendship since the early 1960’s. He “poked” me on Facebook almost 900 times in the last couple of years. I can say my world has been a much better place having had Doyle in it. I will miss him greatly.

    God’s blessings as you grieve the loss of your precious Dad, Grandpa, friend. Philippians 4:” But my GOD shall supply all your need according to HIS riches in glory by CHRIST JESUS.”

    I am saddened to hear about Doyle’s passing. He was a great Monroe Alumni graduate. Doyle along with his twin Dennis were good friends of mine, as we used to run around together. My condolences to his family and especially Dennis and Galen.

    To Doyle’s Family, especially Dennis,
    So sorry to hear about Doyle’s passing. I haven’t seen him since we sat together at Robert Filburn’s funeral, but I have many good memories from our years together at Monroe Central Schools. I regret not being able to attend Doyle’s funeral. It’s one of the drawbacks of spending winters in Florida. My thoughts will be with you.
    Sincerely, Roxie Fraley Ballard
