Obituary Condolences

Montville - James "Jim" Patrick Doyle Sr., 91, was called peacefully to his eternal rest on Monday, Dec. 30, 2013, in Waterford, after a short illness.

Born on March 7, 1922, in Noroton Heights, Jim enlisted in the Navy as a seaman apprentice in June, 1941 on the eve of World War II, retiring 30 years later as a full lieutenant after a storied career that took him from Iceland to Malta, the Panama Canal and the Galapagos Islands and innumerable points in between. He was a communicant of Our Lady of the Lakes Church in Oakdale, and a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus.

Jim is survived by his son, John W. "Jack" Lane; nine grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.

Jim was predeceased by Ruby, his loving wife of 62 years; and his sons, James P. Doyle Jr., and David A. Lane.

Calling hours will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, at the Montville Funeral Home of Church and Allen. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014, at Our Lady of the Lakes Church in Oakdale. Burial will follow at the Middletown Veterans Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in James Doyle's memory may be made to the Wounded Warriors Project (support.woundedwarriorproject.org).
