Bill was born in Oakdale, Louisiana on Jan 24th, 1930. He was one of 8 children of Seab and Ivory Doyle (long since passed). He served his country in the United States Air Force for 21 years and then had a successful career as an Allstate Insurance Agent for 33 years. But his main job was focusing on being an incredible Father and Husband and caring for his family. Quick to smile or tell a joke, often called 'Wild Bill', he loved to play his guitar and sing old Country Songs like: "Hang down your head Tom Dooley" or "Put another log on the Fire". Bill loved life and sharing with others. He loved to Fish, and owned many boats throughout the years, and he was infected by the disease called 'Golf' which occupied a lot of his time. He attended St. Mary's University.
He died on March 14th, 2014 at Silver Leaf Rehabilitation Center where he was a resident for only 3 weeks after a difficult fall that quickly advanced his Parkinson's.
