Doyle Beene DeBeaord, passed away Monday, Sept. 2, 2017, in Orland, CA. He was born in Wynnewood, OK, January 4, 1929. Doyle was the son of William Samuel and Esther Pearl DeBeaord.

He served in the US Army Air Force as a drill instructor from January 1946 to June 1947. He was married to Ruby Frizzell from 1949 to 1982. He married Barbara Pleake in 1984.

Doyle retired after 28 years with Placer County Public Works Department. Doyle was a member of the "OVER THE HILL GANG" (kids who grew up in the government camps) in Yuba City.
