Capt. Thomas John Doyle, USMC, Retired, age 87, formerly of Baden, PA, passed
away on October17, 2023 in Marietta, Georgia. Devoted husband of the late Wilma E. Doyle nee Pechak, he will be buried next to her in Holy Savior Cemetery in Gibsonia, PA.
Forever the hero of his only daughter, Maria-Elena Doyle of Smyrna, GA. Reunited now
with his brothers Vincent (of Florida) and Billy (of Philadelphia) and parents Vincent and
Margaret Doyle (nee Lejeune).
Born in Allison Park, Pennsylvania, Thomas served 25 years in the Marine Corps, including two tours of duty in Vietnam and over ten years stationed at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, NC where he served in Maintenance Air Group 167. After his retirement from the military, he served as a night manager for Central Blood Bank in Pittsburgh and later as an assistant night manager at Wal-Mart in Cranberry Township. He was a boxer as a young man, loved working with his hands, loved Chevys (especially Corvettes), and in his last years was devoted to his cat Bella.
Tom was a steadying presence and independent to the end, and he could always be
relied on to speak his mind and take no guff. He is also survived by his son-in-law,
Charles T. Lipp, nephews Lawrence and Marc Pechak and niece Maria Greco.
Family and friends are welcome on Sunday from 1-5 pm at Devlin Funeral Home of Cranberry Township. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Monday at 10 am at Divine Grace Parish, St. Ferdinand Church, with Rev. Jim Wehner officiating. Interment will follow at Holy Savior Cemetery, Pine Twp.
