Born on March 6, 1961, Patrick was the son of the late Thomas Patrick Doyle and Mary Ellen Hannigan.
Patrick was a man of strength. He worked as a Yard Co-ordinator for the Hudson Bay Company for many years in Ontario before returning home to Cape Breton. He enjoyed the simple things in life. Patrick will be remembered fondly by family and friends for his kind and gentle nature.

A gathering of family and friends will take place from 10-11 a.m. with mass to follow at 11 a.m. with Fr. Duncan MacIsaac officiating. Interment will take place in the parish cemetery.

Patrick, my friend, my brother, How I will miss you…When you think there's No one to love you…You can talk to me through the lord above. I'll Whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees, and you'll feel my presence, In a soft summer breeze, When someone you love becomes a memory…The memory becomes a treasure…Do not ask if we will miss our Patrick…There is such a vacant place in our hearts…We cannot forget his footsteps, not his loving face…The world changes from year to year….But the our love of Patrick Doyle…Will never fade away.
My deepest sympathies to the Doyle family and to those of us who always known Patrick as a brother, a father, a teacher and especially a trusted friend.
