DEATH OF WESLEY DOYLE
The people of Westport were deeply shocked on Monday when the news of the death of Wesley Doyle at the Chamlain Vallley hospital lat that daay became known. Mr. Doyle had been a resident of Westport all his life. He was among the first young men to go to the army from this county, and after having been trained in Camp Devins he was sent to France where he saw service in the front line until the Armistice. He fought in the battle of St. Mihil and also the Toul sector and the Argonne. After the armistice was signed he went into Germany with the Army of Occupation where he served until June.
While not in robust health since the War, his real condition was known to few. He became very ill on Saturday and on Sunday was taken to the hospital where he failed to respond to the treatment given.
Mr. Doyl was a mechanic by trade, being employed before the War at the Buick Garage. Later he opened a garage of his own on Depot Street where he worked until Friday last.
He is survived by his wie, who was Miss Catherine McDonough of Troy, and by one son, Wesley, aged twelve; also by two sisters, Mrs. Nora Boyle and Mrs. Arthur Larrabee of Westport, and two brothers, Rollie of Westport and James of Reber.
His funeral was held Thursday morning at St. Philip's church with Father McCarthy officiating.
