Wow, what can I say. I am in shock that we are in a world with no Dick Doyle. You made such a huge impact on my life. You are greatly missed by many. I 1st met you in 1995 when I started with AIS and very quickly found out and learned what it ment for a machine to be considered Dick Doyle Style. Thank you Dick for all you did and continue to do thru other people that picked up your great habits.

For over 20 years I had the privilege of knowing Dick Doyle buying equipment from AIS. It was wonderful to share our faith together, Pray together, and know each other as Brothers in Christ. As you know, Dick Loved Jesus, his wife Lorraine and his family. Also, Dick carried his badge for AIS with impeccable integrity. I will see my friend Dick Doyle again in Heaven.

Dick and I started at AIS within a year and worked together at Grand Rapids for several years early on. I knew Dick as a man that loved his wife and family as well as his work. His customers thought highly of Dick. He will be missed.

Dick always demanded the best for his customers. He always addressed people at AIS in a respectful manner that brought out the best in them an in turn for his customers.

From the Behrenwalds & the entire AIS Family - We have temporarily lost one of our precious long-term AIS family members - Dick Doyle. Dick passed away Thursday morning and he will be greatly missed by all of us. Dick started with AIS in July of 1968 and had just completed his 53rd year. Dick saw a lot of change over those years in AIS and in the equipment industry. What we can clearly say many things about Dick: • Dick loved God • Dick loved his wife Loraine of 67 years • Dick loved his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren • Dick loved planes, cranes & heavy equipment • Dick served his customers and did all things with excellence and a smile • Dick served his church & community • Dick served his country Dick was known for his welcoming and gracious presence to all. His loyalty, his dedication, his focus on doing things to the best of his ability with God’s guidance, prayer and hard work. He will be deeply missed here on earth but we look forward to seeing him in heaven again!

There are no computers in heaven so I know you are in a better place! It was an honor to sit next to you the last 8 years and help you when you struggle with the evil machine. You were like a grandpa to me and I will miss you so much! AIS will never be the same and we were so blessed to learn from you and know you! Save me a seat near you up there!
