Peter de­voted his life to his loving fam­ily

Bray People - - News -

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.
