Gene E. Doyle, of Boynton Beach, Florida.  Born June 12, 1925 in Phoenix, Arizona, died April 18, 2017 in Atlantis, Florida.  He was a proud World War II Navy Veteran, who served on The Prince William, CVE 31, in both the Atlantic and Pacific Theatres.

 

After his Naval Service, he attended Pepperdine University Theological School and he had extensive knowledge of all religions.

 

His friendly outgoing personality, (Gene never met a stranger) along with his musical talent including playing the keyboard, harmonica and guitar, resulted in a very successful entertainment career, in which Gene appeared in clubs in Washington, DC, Pennsylvania and various locations on the East Coast.  Gene entertained for many years in Florida, including Ft.
