Tribute & Message From The Family

My heart is broken by the loss of my best half. I know he would say don't be sad because I am gone, glad because I lived. He died at home with me and our pups as was his wish. He fought a long battle with lung cancer. He lived his life to the fullest played Football and Rugby for years, loved to travel, dance and cook. He took great pride in taking a balance class of approximately 8 to well over 75 at Sachse Senior Center. He was very serious that they exercise correctly, so not to hurt themselves. He also ran the monthly Bingo and Bunco games in Sachse. He was an avid Texas Hold Em player at the Wylie and Garland Senior Centers and also found time to serve on the HOA Board of Grand Heritage in Lavon. He loved playing jokes on people and especially hiding their plates at the Senior Centers. He treated my kids and grandkids like his own and in the hospital when someone asked how many grandkids he had..he was quick to say 5. My kids and grandkids loved him as I do. They treated him with great respect and enjoyed that he came to see them at the events they were in. He was a huge supporter of Saint Cloud a Saint Bernard Rescue 8137 County Rd., 167, McKinney, TX 75071. We adopted several of their Senior Saints. In lieu of flowers a donation in his name there would enable more Saints to have a forever home. He has two sons with Sissy Doyle his first wife that died. Andrew (Dawn) and Vincent (Stephanie) Doyle and two grandsons Gage and Ryder. It hurts to not be able due to covid to celebrate the life of the best husband I could have ever asked for..but once this is behind us, one will be planned. He will be missed.....
