Arthur Lee “Butch” Doyle – 69, Truro, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, June 10, 2021 in the Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro.
Born in Truro, he was a son of the late Ralph and Mildred (Roode) Doyle.
Harness racing was in Butch’s blood, spending every waking moment at the Truro Raceway and was often willing to help with anything that needed to be done there. He worked for many years as a sales person for Regal Confection. Butch always enjoyed the many characters that went with harness racing and hoped he would be remembered as one. Family and friends meant everything to Butch. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by sisters, Marlyn Wolfe and Diana Pender; brothers, Duckie, Sonny and Bill
At Butch’s request, there will be no visitation or service. Arrangements are under the direction of Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro.
