Memories Timeline


  1. Cindy,
    So sorry to hear of your dad's death. We were both lucky to have such great parents, and I'm glad you had yours so much longer than I. I'll be thinking of you.

  2. I will always remember the first time I met Uncle Doug. His niece Jackie and I were dating and I was attending Texas A&M. Doug had a waxed handlebar mustache, offered me my first Tecate beer with salt and a slice of lime, showed me his cowboy holster and revolver, and offered to buy me a steak dinner at the Texan in Bryan anytime. How could anyone forget meeting Doug? Jackie and I have been married now for 42 years and I have always enjoyed the whole Kyle Family from Normangee. Rest in peace with your wonderful wife.

  3. Mr. Doug Kyle was class, dignity and humility. I knew him from his working days at Dresser Industries where I started work as a seventeen year old. He always treated people with respect and kindness. I moved to Bryan, Texas as a young man and visited him and his lovely wife often. He loved his family and was an excellent gardener. Peace and condolences to the entire Kyle family.
