Doyle was born to James Henry Patterson and Bertha Mae Patterson on October 12, 1934 in Mobeetie, Texas. He was a mechanic by trade, owning his own company, Patterson Auto Service, before selling to his son. Doyle was a jack of all trades and could pretty much do anything. Work was his hobby, he enjoyed many different jobs after his initial retirement. If you ever worked with him, you heard him say “a dollar waiting on a dime” or “if I can do it you can do it”. When he was not working, which was rarely, he enjoyed traveling.
