Doyle Gene O' QuinnDecember 8, 1935 ~ August 9, 2017 (age 81)
Doyle Gene O'Quinn, age 81, passed away Wednesday August 9, 2017. He was born to Herbert Cleveland O'Quinn and Helen Louise Brown on December 8, 1935 in Daisetta, Texas.
Doyle came from the generation of very hard working men. He was a maintenance supervisor for Enron Corporation. Doyle loved to hunt and fish. Fishing with his grandchildren and great grandchildren was a favorite past time for the family. Great memories were created with each of his "favorite" grandchildren. Doyle always told each grandchild that they were his favorite one which made each one feel that much more special. He had a unique way of making the enjoyment of an ice cream sandwich seem like picnic time. That tradition will continue for generations to come. Doyle was a United States Army Veteran who served during the Korean Conflict. He was a true American patriot who enlisted right after high school to serve his country. Serving our loving God and fellow human beings was part of who Doyle was. He and his loving wife of 61 years, Ivy, were active members of Midway Baptist Church of Kountze. Doyle will be missed by all who loved him but his legacy and his traditions will continue with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
