A memorial service for Doyle K. Hindmon will be announced at a later date. At his request, he became a donor and through his caring heart, he is still helping others.
The Guest Book is expired.
Doyle was born October 27, 1925 in Monroe and passed away from this earthly life to his Heavenly home on October 31, 2013 at Morehouse General Hospital.
Doyle was a graduate of Bastrop High School. Like his brother, he loved playing football. He enrolled at NJC (now ULM) in 1945. He used to say jokingly that he dedicated more time to playing football than his studies.
After college, he worked for the Morehouse Sheriff's Department under three sheriffs. He also worked for International Paper and for the Bastrop Police Department where he retired from.
Doyle was a Godly man. He loved his family, church family and many friends. He was always thinking of others. He also loved fishing and hunting with family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Arnie and Katie Hindmon; sister, Elyse Hindmon Smith and brother-in-law, Ray Smith and his brother, William D. "Skinner" Hindmon.
Survivors include his beloved wife of 62 years, Dot W. Hindmon; his sons, David K. Hindmon, Dan T. Hindmon and wife Debora, and Dale W. Hindmon; Charles Lowery and his wife, Ann, C.E. Snyder and his wife, Joyce, who have been like two sons to him, a sister-in-law, Nell R. Hindmon; seven grandchildren: Chris, John, Katie, Josh, Jacob, Ross and Jessica; five great-grandchildren: Breann, Corby, Mallory, Reed and Easton; nephews, Al and his wife, Mary; Todd and his wife, Tamara and a niece, Shannon and her husband, Josh.
The Hindmon family would like to thank the staff at Morehouse General Hospital and especially Dr. Carter Cox for his many years of taking excellent care of Doyle. They would also like to thank Pastor Dalyn and his wife, Gayla, who were so special to him.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Bastrop First Church of God or to another charity.
