JAMES “JIM” EDWARD DOYLE

ARLINGTON – James "Jim" Edward Doyle, 48, of Arlington passed away Saturday, June 28, 2014.

Service: Mass of Christian Burial was held at 10 a.m., Thursday, July 3, 2014 at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church, 1200 S. Davis Drive, Arlington.

Interment: Moore Memorial Gardens. Visitation was held 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 2, 2014 at Moore Funeral Home in Arlington.

He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on June 30, 1965, to James E. Doyle, M.D., and Therese Marie Humenik Doyle.

Jim graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a B.S. in mechanical engineering and received a master's degree in technical management from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. He married Pamela Loree Autry on Dec. 31, 1994, and his daughter, Darcy Loree Doyle, was born Oct. 28, 1998. All three of them enjoyed flying; Pamela earned her private pilot's license shortly after they were married.

Jim worked at Lockheed Martin for 14 years as a stress analyst on projects including the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. He was president of EAA subsidiary International Aerobatic Club Chapter 24, The LoneStar Aerobatic Club for the past three years and was a strong promoter of general aviation, building and flying airplanes and aerobatic flying. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of history and stories, particularly regarding pilots and all aircraft.

He also pursued a love of music and martial arts earning a black belt in tae kwon do. Jim and his daughter shared these interests, regularly working out together as well as flying together.

Jim built an award-winning Skybolt biplane with custom re-designed features of his own preference, which brought him the Bronze Champion Lindy trophy at the EAA Air Venture Fly-In in Oshkosh, Wis., in 2010. He was currently building a Pitts Special S1T with his daughter, Darcy.

Jim won the LoneStar Aerobatic Championships in the Sportsman category in 2013 and he placed second in the Sportsman category in the 2013 International Aerobatic Club United States Nationals competition.

He was an avid supporter, promoter and participant pilot in the EAA Young Eagles program taking scores of young people flying, stressing safety and careful planning while encouraging them to experience the joys of flight.

Jim's legacy is his generosity of time, energy and knowledge to anyone who showed an interest in his passion, aviation. He was an exceptional friend and family man who adored his wife, Pamela, and daughter, Darcy.
