Peter devoted his life to his loving family
THE LATE Peter Doyle was a kind man who devoted his life to his family. The community in Wolfe Tone Square Middle was in mourning at his dea th r e c e n t l y, after a short illness, at the age of 88.
Peter was predeceased by his wife Nan who passed away 17 years ago. He is survived by his children Paddy, Peter, Willie and Mary as well as his 12 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He was well loved by his family, friends and neighbours, all of whom were very fond of the friendly, unassuming gentleman. The local Centra on the Vevay even closed their doors for the duration of his recent funeral at the Queen of Peace as a mark of respect for a long-standing customer.
A native of Wicklow Town, Peter moved to Bray many years ago where he settled with Nan and their children. He worked in the iconic Bray Head Hotel for some time before get- ting a job with Bray Town Council, then known as Bray Urban District Council. As well as general work, he served on the local fire service, work which he enjoyed immensely and talked about often in later years.
Peter loved to spend time with his family and friends and got a lot of joy playing with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Sunday was his weekly evening out and he enjoyed socialising in The Vevay Inn with his family and many friends. Although living alone, he was never wanting for company. He belonged to a closeknit community at Wolfe Tone and was well looked after by a number of neighbours as well as his children, who are heartbroken at their loss. After a funeral Mass at the Queen of Peace, Peter was laid to rest at St. Peter’s Cemetery.
He will be sadly missed by all his loved ones.
