Doyle loved hard. He loved his family with his whole heart and soul. He loved being a grandpa and even more being a great-grandpa. He was known as “Pops” to family and friends. He was a best friend to so many and a stand-in father and grandpa to so many more.

He loved hunting, fishing on Lake Erie, and spending time with family and friends at the cabin and the beach. 

This Gentle Giant will forever live in our hearts.
