“The dash represents all the time we spent alive on earth and now only those who loved us know what that little line is worth. For it matters not, how much we own, the cars… the house… the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.”

Doyle spent his life as a prime example of compassion, care, grace, humility and love. He loved and cared about every single person he met.

His hard work and devotion to learning about, developing, and teaching others carried with him from his work as an EMT with Heard County Emergency Services, Adams Ambulance in Los Angeles, The American Red Cross, and to Intermountain Healthcare.

As an educator, he instilled priceless values into hundreds of student’s careers and has touched an infinite number of lives through the processes and procedures he created in phlebotomy.

Doyle loved adventure and was never one to back down from a challenge. He loved to cook and bake and did so extremely well. His cooking would frequently exceed the limits of his bowls, pots, sinks, bathtubs and every other vessel in the house. But the finished product was better than any restaurant.

His travels took him far and wide but his favorite destinations were his brother’s homes in Georgia, and the Pacific coast in Newport Oregon.

Doyle was preceded in death by his grandparents, mother, Wanda and father, Big John Riley, his brother Dennis, his sister-in-law Debbie and many others.

Survivors include his sons Sheldon (Niki) and Preston (Libby), his brothers Merrell (Angie), Riley (Eileen), Kim, three grandsons, Reese, Riley, Ryker, his best friends Jason and Max, and more friends, family and other relatives than anybody could imagine.

“Go rest high on that mountain, Son your work on earth is done. Go to heaven a-shoutin’ Love for the Father and the Son”
