Obituary For Gary Doyle

It is with great sadness that the family of Gary Doyle announce his passing on May 6th, 2022 at Prairie Lake Hospice, at the age of 51 years, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Gary was an avid outdoorsman who loved spending all his free time biking, snowmobiling or boating. He loved his toys and passed on that bug to his boys. Summers were spent camping with his family and he cherished every minute he spent with them. He was never bored, his garage was his hideout and he always found something to fix or to tinker with.

Gary was born in Newfoundland to Caroline and the late Chelsey Doyle on February 7th, 1971. After spending all his adolescence in Newfoundland, in 1995, Gary and his high school sweetheart, Gladys, moved to Alberta, where they made Grande Prairie home for the last 27 years.

Gary and Gladys were married on June 6th, 1998 and three years later they welcomed their first son, Ashton, who arrived on June 15th,2001. Their family was complete with the addition of their second son, Aidan, born February 23, 2005. Gary was very proud of how great and amazing his young men had become. He passed on a lot of his good traits to them like his kindness, his compassion and always being there to lend a hand.

Gary will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by Gladys, his wife of almost 24 years, his sons Ashton and Aidan, his mother Caroline Doyle, his father and mother in law, Leslie and Edith Toope, sister Stephanie (Randy) Parrill, sister in law Loretta Toope (Jamie Mullaly), and nieces and nephews, Zachary, Lyntesha, Brooke and Luke.

He was predeceased by his father, Chelsey Doyle, grandparents Hubert and Jane Williams, and Abe and Maggie Doyle, and his uncle Whyman Williams.

Gary will be remembered by all his family, friends and work buddies for his heart of gold and as a person who would do anything for anyone. He had a great sense of humor and always wore a smile. He loved spending time with Gladys and the boys; they were his world. He was known for tormenting and playing with his nieces and nephews, who enjoyed spending time with him.

There are no words to describe how much we will miss you. We will carry you in our hearts forever. Though your life was cut short, our world is so much better because you were a part of it. Rest easy until we meet again. We will love you always and forever.

If anyone would like to give a donation in Gary’s memory, please consider donating money or equipment to Prairie Lake Hospice, Unit 203 1140 104 Avenue, Grande Prairie, AB T8V 3G9

A time to celebrate Gary’s life will be announced at a later date.
