James Doyle 03/23/2023

James E. Doyle, age 44, of River Falls, Wisconsin, passed away unexpectedly at home on March 23, 2023.
James was born October 12, 1978, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He moved to River Falls when he was seven years old.
Jim attended school in River Falls, graduating from high school in 1997. He attended the University of Wisconsin, River Falls for two years. For a time, he lived near Austin, Texas and worked as a groundskeeper. Jim loved to cook and was employed for a number of years as a cook.
James was preceded in death by grandparents, Robert and Frances (Koch) Decker, Edmund and Anna Mary (Bauer) Dannecker; sister, Katie Doyle; uncles, John Eschenbacher and Mike Kelly.
James is survived by his sons, Jacob and Vincent Doyle; parents, Michael (Suzanne) and Peg Doyle; grandfather, Richard Doyle; aunts, Joan Hanson, Peggy Doyle-Rogers, Alice Kelly, Mary Thoemke, and Jane Eschenbacker; uncles, Edmund Dannecker and Christopher Doyle; and many friends.
Jim had a beautiful soul and empathy for animals. He had a sense of humor (that could be wicked), and he was always thinking outside the box. He was an intelligent, creative, talented and sensitive man.
A private gathering for family was held.
Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services.

    I hadn’t seen Jim in 20 years or so, but he was one of my closest friends in high school. I’m so sad to learn that he’s gone.

    Pleasure getting to know Jim at work the last few months. He was a bright face and easily approachable. I appreciated his honesty about life. I liked that Jim was kind, real about his journey and offered some insightful and often funny advice. Jim was relatable ! I am saddened to hear of his passing ..
    I wish him serenity & joy.
    My heart goes out to those he held dear and to those who loved him.

    Sorry for your loss…the next life is pretty good though, your guy will be cooking up some great vittles in heaven!

    I stopped by today, looking for an old friend, who shares an uncanny resemblance with your beloved. My friend is also James Doyle, from Minneapolis, and Stillwater!They could be brothers! Uncanny…and bless you
