There will be a Memorial Service for Gerald “Red” Doyle at 6 p.m. Sunday, May 27, at Sunrise Baptist Church in Kerrville, Texas.
Veteran missionary Gerald Doyle went home to be with his savior on Friday, May 25, 2007, from his residence in Kerrville.
“Red,” as he was affectionately called by many who knew him, was born to Hubert & Pauline Walton Doyle in Montague County, Texas, on June 26, 1926. He was saved in a summer revival of the Fargo Baptist church in August 1941. He was baptized by the First Baptist church of Vernon, Texas. In 1946 he committed his life to the Christian Ministry. He graduated from Hardin Simmons University in May 1951. Gerald met Mauriece Patterson while attending college. They were married in 1951 in Mauriece's home church at Munday, Texas. Gerald enrolled at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, in 1952; he graduated in 1955.
In 1958, at Foreign Missions Week at Ridgecrest, N.C., Red and Mauriece made public commitments to serve as foreign missionaries. In June of 1959 they were both appointed by the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist convention as career missionaries to the nation of Ecuador. After spending a year in language school in San Jose, Costa Rica, they arrived in Ecuador, Oct. 30, 1960. They spent the following 33 years in Ecuador, starting and nurturing new churches. They served in four cities: Quito, Manta, Guayaquil and Cuenca; they were instrumental in founding a total of 33 churches.
Red and Mauriece left Ecuador for retirement in 1993. They made their home in Fredericksburg, Texas, for eight years, prior to moving to Kerrville. They served in the Spanish-speaking church at Oak Park for five years until Red's health began to fail. They joined Sunrise Baptist Church in 2006.
Gerald is survived by his wife, Mauriece, of the home in Kerrville; two sons, Chad Doyle of Uvalde, Texas, and Eric Doyle of Lake Jackson, Texas; two daughters, Marla Fuller of Plano, Texas, and Renda Ziegler of Burke, Va.; one brother, Joe Doyle, of West Colombia, Texas; and one sister, Juquita Hall, of Tyler, Texas; plus a host of fellow missionaries and other believers who are considered “family.”
Gerald was also a former pastor of the Gould First Baptist Church before he and his wife went to Ecuador. Gerald's funeral and burial will be held at Chilicothe, Texas, (near Vernon) on Tuesday morning, May 29. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the mission project in which Gerald and Mauriece have been currently active. Gifts may be sent to “Project Guayaquil,” Global outreach, P.O.. Box I, Tupelo, MS 38802.
