The family raised horses, sheep, milk cows, chickens, peacocks, ducks, pigs, and loved all animals. Doyle continued his schooling in refrigeration. Doyle worked in his father’s refrigeration business until 1966. Dad encouraged and supported his children’s activities in life. He loved dogs. Jake, a red Australian Shepherd, was his companion on the farm west of Casper on Zero Rd. and delivering Meals on Wheels. He was a very loving and caring man.
