DOYLE, Peter Martin “Doits”
February 10, 2023


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of my brother, Peter Martin Doyle, on February 10, 2023, at the age of 68. Peter resided in Ste Genevieve.

Born on May 29, 1954 in Montreal, Peter attended Saint Thomas High School and worked at a variety of jobs before settling in at CANADAIR/Bombardier, where he was a long time valued employee.

Peter was a star athlete for Cedar Park Heights, excelling in baseball, football and hockey.  He was a member of the Pointe Claire Alumni Hall of Fame and was first player to reach 100 career goals in the Pointe Claire Intermediate Hockey League. Peter was an avid golfer and a dear friend to so many. He had a quick wit and loved to have fun!

Peter was the son of the late Bernie and Marie Doyle formerly of Pointe Claire. He was predeceased by his sister Cindy, of Dollard des Ormeaux and his sister, Heather of Hudson. Peter leaves to mourn his beloved brother Barry (Cheryl), nephews Jonathan (Jamie), Adam (Sarah), niece Chelsea, grandnieces Brooklyn and Anna, grandnephew Benjamin; among an abundance of close friends from childhood, who will all miss him dearly.

A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.

Donations in Peter’s memory to the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence would be greatly appreciated.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to Voluntas.

    Have not seen Peter since high school, but he was never without smile and a pleasure to be around. He will be missed by the many that knew him. My condolences to friends and family.

    Barry I am so sorry for your loss. The Doyle family was always such a blessing to Pointe Claire! Peter really was one of the best men I knew. He was always around when he was needed, he was a great athlete and had the best laugh. He was one of those guys who everyone thought was their best friend. I didn’t see him much in the later years but his friendships run deep so this still hurts.

    So sorry for your loss and hope you find peace in your beautiful family back home! I will always treasure my memories of living with your family so much but I felt safe & loved coming home to your place and your mom was having bridge game in the dining room and her yummy brownies were so delicious and then we would go downstairs to Heathers huge bedroom! I still dream about all of you so remember that you had wonderful parents who I loved very deeply! Remember that your family are all together in peace Take care you & your family

    Very sad news! Peter was unquestionably one of the “Good guys”.

    Perhaps the following words will help us understand …

    “He Only Takes the Best”

    God saw he was getting tired
    And a cure was not to be,
    So he put his arms around him
    And whispered, “Come with me”.

    With tear filed eyes you watched him
    Suffer and fade away.
    Although you loved him deeply,
    You could not make him stay.

    A golden heart stopped beating,
    Hard working hands put to rest.
    God broke your hearts to prove to you
    He only takes the best.

    So sorry for your loss. I knew your brother Peter through my dear friend Shane Brophy, we lost him this past May. They two of them were quite the duo and I would have to remind you that Peter was a bit of a looker. Lots of the local girls thought that he was handsome or should I say “cute”. I grew up in the large St. Laurent crowd and knew lots of their friends from the schools and the Kana and Canadair. I hold fond memories of tagging along with the two boys. Bless you now with happy memories.
