William Garland Doyle


WILLIAM GARLAND “BILL” DOYLE, age 83, passed away Friday, August 23, 2019 at Johnson City Medical Center, Johnson City, Tenn.

Bill never met a stranger; but when he did, they were instant friends and touched by his presence. He was a loving husband, father, father-in-law, papaw, friend and fighter – surviving four strokes, two pacemakers, and 42 years working for General Shale, never missing a day his last 22 years of work. Mr. Doyle enjoyed people and people enjoyed his easy-going personality. Just a few months before he passed, Bill was up to 82 minutes on the treadmill. He was a wonderful example of Jesus on earth as he lived his faith.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy Bise Doyle; and parents, Garland and Rose Doyle; and Charlie his beloved poodle.

Bill is survived by his son, Joe Doyle and wife, Sheila of Gray, Tenn.; sisters, Ginny Doyle and Barbara Doyle, both of Rural Retreat, Va.; brothers, Charles Doyle of Rural Retreat, Va., Bobby Doyle of Wytheville, Va. and Herman Doyle of Rural Retreat, Va.; grandson, Ryan Doyle and wife, Natalie of Clayton, N.C.; great-grandchildren, Caroline and Grayson Doyle; and nephew, Stan Doyle.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, August 29, 2019 at 1 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel, 237 East Main Street, Marion Va. with Mr. Blake Frazier officiating. Burial will follow in Rose Lawn Cemetery, 4410 Lee Highway, Marion Va. The family will receive friends Thursday, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel.

Dear Doyle Family, We send to you our deepest sympathy. My dad, Junior Anders, worked with William at General Shale. They were buddies and would visit each other. We all thought the world of William. After Dad passed away, we were blessed to continue our friendship with William. We enjoyed visiting with him and Charlie on our trips to see Mom in Marion. He was a very special man. We are so sorry for your loss. We will miss William so much, but we take comfort that he is with his Savior and Lord. We are also truly sorry that we can't be there for his service. We will be taking our son to the airport for his flight back to Germany on Thurs. Please know that you will all be in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you all and give you comfort and peace.
