Christopher Patrick Doyle
OCEAN PINES — On July 8, 2014, Christopher Patrick Doyle was involved in a fatal car accident on Route 90 heading home to Ocean Pines.
Chris is survived by his mother, Debbie; brother, Sean; and sister, Courtney. He was preceded in death by the late Eddie Doyle.
Chris had many great qualities about him. He was very generous, honest, loyal, hilarious and his work ethic was outstanding. Chris was a very skilled carpenter and could build anything with his hands. Putting these aside, Chris’s most amazing quality was the love that he had for his family and friends. There is nothing Chris would not do for them and most of the time before you asked him for the favor he had already done it.
Whether you knew Chris for a day or 31 years, once you met him you had a true friend for life. Chris lit up the room with his infectious smile, and when he walked through the door you knew you were in for an awesome time.
Chris Doyle was an amazing man and will be truly be missed by all. We love you.
