Obituary of Leonard Raymond Doyle
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Leonard Raymond Doyle, beloved husband of 48 years to his wife Kathy (Boyle), announces his passing on March 8, 2021, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born in Saint John on August 12, 1947, he was the son of the late W. Raymond and Mary Helen (Arsenault) Doyle.
Lenny was a hard worker and a jack of all trades. He was passionate about his job where his longest career was with the UA Local 213 as a pipe fitter for 39 years. When he wasn’t hard at work, you could find him hunting, fishing, or camping with his and Kathy’s best friends Roland and Alice Hebert - or a combination of the three. His sacred fishing hole was at Salmon River. Leonard was also big hearted and a family man. His grandchildren were his everything and he truly cherished what it meant to be a father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Leonard is survived by his loving wife Kathy; children: Tony Doyle, Mary (Brad) Stevenson, Karie (Robert) Rodgers, and Jeffrey (Mandy) Doyle; grandchildren: Sophie, Joseph, Katelyn (Nam), Melissa (Chris), Paige, Colby, Emily, Calvin (Hannah), Karly, and Fallon; great grandchildren: Adelyn, Elijah, as well as one more on the way; brothers: Lawrence (Anita) Doyle, Greg Doyle, Bob (Pauline) Doyle, and Martin Doyle; sisters: Andrea (Tim Cobb) Doyle, and Theresa Arsenault; as well as several nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, Leonard was predeceased by his brother John.
