Doyle was born on December 29, 1931 in San Antonio, Texas to M.D. and Ruth Geiser. He graduated from Texas A&I University in Kingsville, Texas and also served honorably in the United States Army.

Doyle married Rosa Lee Dennis, the love of his life, on August 29, 1958. In fact, just next month they would have celebrated 65 years together!

Doyle worked for many years as a petroleum engineer and eventually served as Vice President of Transmission with Lone Star Gas (which eventually became Atmos). He was a Mason and a member of the Rotary Club. Doyle and Rosie are members of the Lamar Baptist Church where Doyle served faithfully as a Deacon. He loved gardening and all kinds of outdoor activities including golf, hunting, fishing and camping. He especially enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s sports events and their other activities.

Doyle was preceded in death by his sister Sheila Chaney; his brother Travis Geiser and his grandson Tyler Johnson.

He is survived by his loving wife Rosa Lee Geiser of Arlington, Texas; daughter Karen Temple of Arlington, Texas (husband William), daughter Cheryl Johnson of Atlanta, Georgia (husband Mark); son James Geiser from Granbury, Texas (wife Stacy); grandchildren Brittany Childs of Tyler, Texas (husband Clint), Blair Taylor of San Diego, California (husband Nick), Courtney Riggs of Dallas, Texas (husband Will), Kaylee Geiser of Dallas, Texas and Austin Geiser of Houston, Texas; and great grandchildren Minnie Lee Riggs, Mark Steven Riggs and Ellie Rose Taylor.

Memories Timeline


  1. Rosie and family~We are praying for you. Y’all are such special friends and neighbors to my parents and me. I remember when Nathan was little, he’d hear Doyle mowing and he’d run and get his toy lawnmower and go outside to “mow” Grandma and Grandpa’s grass at the same time. I will always smile when I recall that memory. God bless you always.
