Daniel James Doyle Jr. of Roy celebrated his 80th birthday on Friday.

Born March 29, 1933, to Daniel James and Helen Lindstrom Doyle, he grew up in Farr West and attended Weber County schools. At age 17, he left school to join the U.S. Air Force and began his military career.

He was married to Margaret Veneta Wright for almost 58 years, and they raised four children: Timothy J. Doyle, Richard L. Doyle, Dennis B. Doyle and Barbara A. Dean. He has 11 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

After serving his country for 22 years, he retired from the Air Force. He was employed by the city of Ogden as a supervisor at the Ogden Filter Plant.

Upon leaving there, he remained busy with woodworking, fishing, gardening, caring for his animals and spending time with family. He enjoys reading, doing puzzles and sharing stories about “the good ol’ days.”
