Scott Anthony Doyle, age 50, of Marion, IA died peacefully on November 18, 2011 at his home, after a year long struggle with throat cancer. Scott was born in Dubuque, IA on August 2, 1961 to Donald and Cecilia Doyle. After school he joined the Army Reserve in Decorah and played drums with the Cheyenne band formed by Scott and his brothers Mike and Brian. Scott worked in construction and later moved to Marion, IA to be closer to his parents and be able to help them whenever necessary. Just as Scott helped them, his mom and aunt (Sister Marie Barth of the Presentation Sisters), have given Scott the best possible care over his last few weeks. And gracious thanks to the crew of nurses and doctors from Saint Luke’s and hospice workers that helped above and beyond. Scott was blessed with the lifetime friendship of Brent Nordhus and Shirley Koshatka. Scott is survived by his mother Cecilia of Marion; brothers Mike (Pam) Doyle of Texas, Brian (Bonnie) Doyle of Montana and Chris (Kathy) Doyle of Cedar Falls, IA; sister Donna (John) Burgart of New Hampton. Scott was preceded in death by a brother Patrick and his father Donald, paternal grandparents Jerome and Marie and maternal grandparents Fred and Veronica. Scott will be missed by all of us for his kindness, his ability to listen, and his generosity. Cemetery: Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery at New Hampton. Military rites will be provided by the New Hampton American Legion Fae Stine Post #38 and the New Hampton VFW Post #5238. Memorials may be directed to the family. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the St. Joseph Gathering Space on Tuesday. A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial for Scott will be at 10:30am, Tuesday, November 22, 2011 at Holy Family Parish – St. Joseph Center in New Hampton, Iowa with Father Mark Osterhaus celebrating.
