I was so sorry to hear about Doyle's passing. My deepest sympathies to the family.
John and Deanna, so sorry for your loss. May god comfort you and your family during this time.
A smile always comes to my face when I think of Doyle. Knowing him has been a pleasure since John and Deanna married. I feel I lost a brother and a friend at the same time. Prayers go up for his entire family and many friends.
Uncle Doyle you'll definitely be missed by so many but you will live on in our memories. Nights out at Uncle Scott's where the party didn't start until you showed up with music and nights out at the rodeo watching bull and bronc riding. Always remember you teaching me to ride a bull and getting me to actually do it. Wasn't good but gained some memories. Love ya Uncle Doyle and save a spot for me around the campfire and maybe a beer or two.
Thank you for being there for me in some dark times and listening and just be. Thank you friend until we meet again!!
You were a great inspiration in my life. You may be gone but I truly will never forget you.
Doyle you have left an empty space in so many peoples' lives and hearts. You will be missed by many and I am no exception. I am so thankful our paths crossed and so grateful for the memories. You will always hold a special place in my heart. I will miss you. Rest In Peace.
I’m still having a very hard time with the fact your really gone... I grew up with you, we grew up together... the memories we share of the good ole days will always be near to my heart! You were my FAVORITE Uncle that I thought the world of!!! In my eyes you were never wrong! I was always on your side, even if you might have been in the wrong I never questioned! Loyalty was everything back in those days... you, me and Unk Scott really kicked up the town of Marana! I had the two best Unks a girl could ask for!!! Give them hell up there cowboy! I know Unk Scott was waiting on you at those gates! Hell he was probably at that hospital with you to help you cross over! I will always love our memories, of a little girl that got to go with you on your dates to a teen that thought you hung the moon to an adult that respected you to the fullest! You will forever be missed Keep my seat reserved! I hope there’s a camper you can run to up there Incase Aunt Cathy is giving Unk hell!!! Oh I love those days!!!
Gonna miss our times we had, no iam not I have a great memory of the great times we had. God bliss you .
To the friend I thought of as an annoying brother, thanks for all the laughter, for being a great listener and for just being an all around great character to know. Until we meet again watch over us. You were always larger than life and will be greatly missed.
We will forever miss Doyle’s physical presence. But his soul is with the Lord, and his spirit remains around all of us always. For us in particular, parts of Doyle live on in the arena he has helped Jimmy build over the last many months. Blessings on all of Doyle’s family members and friends.
Sorry we never had the pleasure to meet you, but we feel we knew you as Rhonda spoke of you often..
Fly with the angels Uncle Doyle.
RIP Doyle. The Farris crew will miss you. Still in shock but we know you are at peace now. Until we meet again. Our condolences to his family. Prayers to all.
We carry you with us. We love you. We miss you. Thank you for being a part of our life thank you for loving us back. Thank you for loving posey so unconditionally. Thank you for believing in me.. thank you for being a friend. We will never forget you.
You will always be loved and missed. My heart will be broken and have a hole where you lived. Until we meet again cowboy. Ride high with Jesus.
I am so sorry to hear about Doyle. I met him in Jan. at a golf course in Phoenix and played with him and his friend Jimmy. Had so much fun with them. Talked about an interest in street rods we both shared. He made me laugh so many times.....made quite an impression on me.....so nice and fun. Was wishing we would meet up again to share laughs.....someday now in heaven...... Sincere sympathies to all of his family.
He truly will be missed and loved always.
