Tributes
  1. Rest in Peace Mr Doyle. You were a great neighbour to us for many years. Our favourite memory is all the blocks of chocolate you bought us for checking your letterbox when you enjoyed holidays.
    Love Don, Christine, Andy and Katie Seymour

  2. I was saddened to hear of the passing of Roger. I had spoken to him on the phone before Christmas and had hoped to visit him in the New Year. That call is now a memory of a caring and respected gentleman with his usual bit of humour.

    Many fond memories from the 13 years I worked in the Office at Moe High School, while Roger was Deputy Principal and, at times, Acting Principal. It was a privilege to work with him and to have kept in contact with him over the last 35 years.

  3. Roger Doyle (or Uncle Roger as we called him when we were young) was always a part of mine and my two brothers’ lives. As a very close friend of our parents he was a caring, fun-loving “uncle” and friend. He had a wonderful sense of humour and musical talent and when he was around there was always laughter, fun and often singing. We adored him.

    Delightful memories of sharing Roger’s company at Cape Paterson gatherings and at his home in Moe when on my first visit I was feted with crayfish on the menu!!

    Roger relished good conversation, interesting people, musical soirees,and hymn-alongs.

    Fond memories of an articulate, wise, perceptive, just and inclusive gentleman who could be diplomatic when required.

    All the richer for having made your acquaintance Roger. I wonder which hymn book is being used by the heavenly choirs??

    Requiescat in pace

  6. My former Morwell High School teacher who introduced me to musical comedy and made such a huge impression on my life. He sought we out a few years ago when I was a director of the Australian Shareholders’ Association of which he was a member. He contacted the National Office staff and told them he thought he had taught me in high school! We met again after 60 years and developed a friendship these past few years with a few visits to his home and his nursing home. We spoke at Christmas. I will be forever thankful for this wonderful man and his influence on my life, and a chance to give back to him in his last years. He was always so excited to receive a visit or a phone call from me and loved to talk about shares and investing.

  7. Rest in Peace, Roger.

    You have been such a mentor to so many. I still fondly remember our English classes and tried over the years to follow your lead in my own teaching career of being firm but fair.

    The letter you sent on the passing of our mother brought my brother and I great comfort. It was yet another example of your kindness and compassion towards others.

    Ever the gentleman, you will be greatly missed.
