Michael Leonard Doyle

July 12, 1956 - December 10, 2018

Michael Leonard Doyle Fernley, NV - Michael Leonard Doyle, of Fernley, Nevada passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack on December 10, 2018. He was 62 years old.
Born in Gloucester, Mass., Michael was a graduate of Gloucester High School's Class of '74, and went on to receive a BA from Salem State College. In the mid-70s he participated in the Bay View Cemetery Restoration Project, and later worked for the City of Gloucester. Mike headed West and built a home in Fernley, Nevada, outside Reno. He was a longtime member of the Operator Engineers Union Local 3.
Since his teen years, Mike was an avid traveler who visited Europe, the Caribbean, and much of North America.
He was a fanatic about cars.....automobiles were his passion. He could recite the 'options' of any vehicle, any year, make or model, with total recall. He collected industry promotional sales brochures like others collect rare coins. Most of all, Mike was a kind, caring friend and brother, who offered help freely to those who needed it.
Michael is survived by two sisters, Doreen Doyle of Sturbridge and Kathleen Auditore of Lawrence; beloved cousins, Hilda Christine Duggan and Mary Mello of Rockport, among many other family members, long-time high school classmates, and loyal friends across the country. His only nephew, Joseph Leonard Auditore predeceased him by 14 months.
Memorial services will be held in Gloucester in the early spring and will be announced in the newspapers prior to the date. Those who wish may make donations to the American Heart Association.
