Doyle was born on November 25, 1933, in Mills County (Payne Gap), Texas, to Thomas Ell and Jessie Hunt Duncan. He was a loving son, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was baptized at an early age and a member of Moline Baptist Church. He attended schools in Payne Gap, Star and Goldthwaite, Texas.
On December 22, 1951, Doyle married Norma Kathryn Hammond in Goldthwaite at First Baptist Church. Three children were born to this union, Vaneta Kay, Richard Alan, and Jana Rae. They lived and worked in Midland, Texas, until 1966, when they returned to Goldthwaite where Doyle was engaged in farming and ranching and owned and operated a liquid feed and fertilizer company. In 1978, Doyle and Norma moved to Andrews, Texas, where he worked for Farmer Construction Company (J.R. Brinson and Jerry Hammond). In 1981, Doyle formed his own company, Duncan Construction, building roads and drilling locations in the oilfield. Doyle was a very honest and hard-working man and made many friends in all his ventures.
