My sincere condolences to the Dunn family. I want you to know that we love Doyle and never forget the time we were able to get to know him and spend with him.

I will tell his grand children and great grand children all I know about him and how he was there when my daughter, his granddaughter was born and we cherish those memories.
Sad to here this. Doyle and I were at our peak age and best buds in the mid 80s.
Classic party guy and best friend.
