Doyle was born on Feb. 9, 1935, in New Home, Texas to the late Robert Bradshaw and Leta Kitchens. He attended schools in Levelland, Texas and Spur, Texas, and graduated from Casa Grande High School (Arizona). He served in the United States Air Force for eight years, stationed in Anchorage, Alaska. Doyle married Frances Wilson on April 8, 1966, in Brownfield, Texas. He was employed as an electronics technician for 30 years with GTE (General Telephone Electric) and then with NTS Communications before retiring in 1997.

He was an active member of Redbud Baptist Church and enjoyed spending time with family, playing golf and being in the outdoors. He was an avid fan of old Western movies and classic country music. He was a member of the VFW, the American Legion and the Elks Lodge #1348. Doyle was always a generous giver of his time and money and financially supported many different charities.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Frances; daughter Patti Garcia; grandson Jason Morgan; identical twin, Don; brother Robert; and sister, Jean Zimmerman. Survivors include his son, Monty Bradshaw, and wife, Shannon; a daughter, Kristi Sudduth; grandchildren Ashlyn and Riley Bradshaw, Zach Sudduth and wife, Madison, Reagan Sudduth, Josh Morgan and wife, Anna; great-grandchildren Henleigh and Brixton Sudduth, Garrett and Gage Morgan; and his loving friend Dorothy Dickey.
