Passing of Terry Doyle

Posted on 22nd, August 2015

To all DFWJKDA Students and friends:

It is with heavy heart that I make you aware of the passing of Terry Doyle after a courageous battle with cancer. I first met Terry in 2010. He came to me with the hope of better preparing himself to protect his wife should the need arise. Over the course of the next four years, Terry never missed a Monday night JKD Group Class. I can honestly say there has never been a single person more supportive of our school than Terry. He gave freely of his time, his talents and his wisdom. He was a student, a friend, a mentor and a role model. His kind heart, his willingness to share, and his strong desire to help new students was evident to everyone that knew him. When we purchased our current building, Terry was at the new school every single day working endlessly to make the school better. Over the course of the last five years I have had the good fortune to become very close to Terry. He treated me like a son and I looked to him as a father. His guidance was always available and he consistently made me become a better person. Often, he would get me back "on track" when circumstances caused me to get derailed. The impact this man had on my life will leave a lasting impression. I feel so blessed to have had Terry Doyle in my life and I know many of you feel the same.

There will be visitation Wednesday, August 26th, from 6-8pm.

Visitation will be at:

Lucas Funeral Home
1321 Precinct Line Road
Hurst, TX 76053

There will be no public funeral.

In honor of Terry and to allow any student wishing to attend the visitation, all DFWJKDA classes will be canceled Wednesday, August 26th.

Please keep Terry and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
