William Doyle Sr. Obituary


William Edward Doyle Sr passed away Monday, October 23, 2023, after a brief illness with cancer.

Bill was born in New Rochelle, NY on January 28, 1940, to James Arthur Doyle Jr and Elise Richardson Doyle.

After Bill graduated from high school, he had a long and varied career. In the 1960s, he worked at Technical Material Corporation installing marine radios; he became a ham radio operator with the call sign WA2HTD. In the 1970s he taught Electronics at New Rochelle High School for 13 years while also working as an officer for the New Rochelle Harbor Patrol during his summers off.

In 1981, Bill permanently moved to his summer home in North Egremont, MA to work as a manager at At-A-Glance in Pittsfield, MA, where he was valued for being an objective problem-solver. He also was a volunteer member of the Great Barrington First Responders. Bill, along with Kathy, Kelly, and Chris, moved to Otego, NY when At-A-Glance was sold to Keith-Clark and spent many great years there working with the Otego Emergency Squad and Fire Department. After retiring from Keith Clark, Bill and Kathy moved to Crown Point, NY– a place near their favorite camping spot at Bulwagga Bay. They purchased a home on Lake Champlain where they could have all the children and grandchildren visit yearly and to enjoy their passions: the lake for Bill and land for Kathy’s gardens.

Bill is survived by his wife of 30 years, Kathleen Wilson. By his brother James J Doyle and sister-in-law Ethel Baker Doyle (Pixie); his sister-in-law Judy Wilson and brother-in-law Richard Schenk. Bill is also survived by his children: son William E Doyle Jr and son-in-law Tom Mirabile; son Thomas Doyle; daughter Anne Dargie and grandsons Cameron and Harley Dargie; son Christopher Doyle and wife Nicole Gaines Doyle. Stepdaughter Kelly Wilson; grandchildren Lorraine Worden and Dustin Tonkin; and great-grandson Thomas Worden. He leaves behind an extended family of cousins, nieces, and nephews as well as his beloved family dogs, Emma and Mira, and cat, Sweet Pea.

A service will be held at the 1st Congregational Church of Crown Point, NY on Thursday, October 26, with Reverend David Hirtle officiating.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Shriners Children’s Hospital.

Burial will be a private ceremony with the family.
