Francis Henry Doyle, age 86 of Nelson BC passed away on September 06, 2012 after a struggle with cancer. He was born December 6th 1925 raised and educated in Nelson by his beloved parents Victor and Caroline Doyle.
” Frank” as we all knew him by, served in the Military WWII, and was a Correction Officer in Vancouver for a short time before he began his business in Nelson. He was well known within the community as “the Painter”, and was the owner of FH Doyle Painting and Decorating.
He is preceded in death by his two beloved sons Rodney Martin & Myles Lee Doyle. Francis is lovingly remembered by his living Children; Richard Doyle of Trail BC, Carolyn (Doyle) & Gregg Ouellette of Chase BC, Lori-Ann (Doyle) & Richard DeRoche of Spokane WA and Valerie (Doyle) & Ernie Derksen of Calgary AB. He will be missed by all of his Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren. Francis is also remembered by his brother Stanley Doyle in Fruitvale BC, and his two sisters Kay Middlebrook of Los Angeles CA and Marie Herring of Las Vegas NV.

The Doyle family would like to thank the nursing staff at Talarico Place in Castlegar & Kootenay Lake Hospital for their kindness and care for our Father during his illness. We would also like to thank all of the special “Angels within the Nelson community who were always there to lend an extra hand to Dad when needed. Our beloved Dad “the Painter” is at rest and will be missed by so many but we will always carry his memory in our hearts.
