Mr. Wright was born in Midland City, Alabama to the late David Andrew Wright and Nettie Lou Sims Wright. He attended Dale County High School. Doyle worked as a route salesman for many years with Dairy Fresh, Bordens, and Flav-O-Rich. He retired as a route salesman with Flowers Baking Company. He had a work ethic like no other man that you have ever met. He coached for over twenty-five years in the youth leagues of Headland, and gained many sons because of his kind and compassionate heart. Doyle met no strangers and left a good memory and smile with every person he came in contact with. He loved his family and especially his grandchildren that he nicknamed Catfish (boys) and Sally (girls). He was very quiet and humble man. He was a selfless man and would give you anything he had, if he knew you needed it. Doyle was a member of First Baptist Church – Headland. He was an avid Alabama fan and could coach with the best, from his recliner.

Along with his parents, he was also preceded in death by his brothers, Andrew Denver “Demp” Wright, David Lavon “Beck” Wright, and Richard Darrell Wright.

Leaving to cherish his memories are his wife of fifty-two years, Pamela Harrison Wright; his sons, Shane Wright (Jennifer) of Dothan, AL, Derek Wright (Natalie) of Headland, AL, Dr. Clayton Wright (Betsy) of Headland, AL, and Clint Wright (Erin) of Headland, AL; his sisters, Glenda Wright Hoffman of Midland City, AL and Jane Wright Besecker (Ted) of Dothan, AL; his brother Lomax “Max” Wright of Byron, GA; his special cousin, Norman Wright; his grandchildren, Harrison Wright, Hayes Wright, Clara Wright, Caitlin Wright Aplin (Micheal), Coleman Wright, Ivey Wright, Elin Wright, and Easton Wright; His sisters-in-law, Patricia Woodham of Headland, AL and Lorreta Jenkins (Mitchell) of Snellville, GA; his several nieces and nephews, and cousins.

Serving as active pallbearers will be his sons and grandsons. Serving as honorary pallbearers will be any of his former ball players.

The family wishes to extend a gratitude of thanks to Dr. Carlos S. Clark, II, Dr. Jarrod B. Adkinson, Dr. Scott McAllister, and their office staffs for the compassionate care given to Doyle in this past year.
