Obituary of Dan Doyle

It was a long way to the top, but he made it. Dan Doyle, 57, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his wife, children, sons-in-law and three baby woodpeckers in his backyard. We like to think these were his mother, Phyllis and his brothers Steve and Jeff, guiding him home.


Dan will be remembered in myriad ways. A pillar of his community. A lover and a fighter. A "guy's guy." With a number 17 on his back. Endlessly generous with his time as a hybrid carpenter-plumber-electrician-painter. In his recliner. With his skates. Toolbelt on. Bearing a boyish grin. Remembered forever.


Dan is survived by his wife, Melanie (née Merriman), and their children, Kayla (Don) and Dylan (Matt). Predeceased by his loving mother, Phyllis, and brothers, Stephen and Jeffrey. Survived by Father, Mike (Pat) and siblings, Theresa (Les), Deborah, Linda (Rennie), Catherine (Gord) and Bryan (Sherri). Also survived by his in-laws, David and Frances, Stephen (Sharon) and Robert (Virginia). Missed by all nieces and nephews.


A visitation will be held on Saturday, December 10, 2022, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Barclay Funeral Home in Brockville, ON. In lieu of giving flowers, the family asks that those who are able instead make a donation to the ALS Society of Canada.


To our Jimmy in the sky with diamonds: you shared with us the night before you left, "I need a vacation." You got it, bud. We'll see you in paradise.
