In addition to his wife, survivors include his two daughters, Kimberley A. Doty-Ashline and Brenda L. Doty-Phillips and husband Edward; three grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; mother, Marge Doty; brother, Clyde Doty Sr. and wife June; mother-in-law, Marion Hare; two sisters-in-law, Mary Lou Rabideau and husband Giles, and Shirley Blake; special family friends, Carl Ashline Jr. and Jesse Read; several nieces and nephews; and eight great-nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father; and twin brother, Roland Doty.

There will be no public calling hours or services. Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family. A gathering will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13, at 16 John Boswell Road, Peru.
