FatherLawrence Eugene Garrigus1 b. circa 1906
MotherMildred Withrow1 b. 3 Jul 1913, d. Nov 1995
Birth*11 Feb 1946 Doyle was born at Brazil, Clay Co, IN, on 11 Feb 1946.2 
 He was the son of Lawrence Eugene Garrigus and Mildred Withrow.1 
Marriage*circa 1978 Doyle Garrigus married Beth (?) circa 1978.2 
Death*23 Apr 2014 Doyle died on 23 Apr 2014 at Aurora, Arapahoe Co, CO, at age 68.
Doyle Garrigus unexpectedly took his life at his home on April 23, 2014 in Aurora, Colorado. Doyle was born in Brazil, Indiana on Feb 11, 1946, the youngest son of Eugene & Mildred (Withrow) Garrigus. He graduated from Brazil High School, Class of 1964 and was in wrestling; football-Captain; Stage of Stammer; Honor Society; Class Treasurer; and Graduated from Indiana State University with a degree in Accounting. His professional experience included General Motors, Federal Express, Brega & Winters Law Firm, teaching accounting at Aurora Community College.

In 2007 Doyle came out of retirement to accept the position as Financial Manager with Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR), a non-profit organization distributing food in Northern Colorado & Wyoming. FBR's key programs are Fighting Hunger Feeding Hope, Denver's Table, and Children's Nutrition Network.

He was preceded in death by his parents, niece, Zona Garrigus; cousin, John Withrow; he is survived by his wife of 36 years, Beth; brother Lowell Garrigus, Clarksville, TN; niece Marla (Gary) Norris and their son, Griffin, Terre Haute; niece Felicia Face and her children Megan, Logan & Preston, Clarksville, TN; cousins Jim (Jan) Withrow, Centerpoint; Marlene Withrow, Greenwood, Indiana; close friend Jim Lawless.

Doyle was kind-hearted and will be missed for his work ethic, quick wit and sense of humor. When hunting stories are told, the time he fell out of a tree and had to be carried out of the woods will be shared. Doyle would ask if you wanted to see his 'Pride & Joy' and pull out a can of furniture polish and dish detergent. His nickname was Uncle Doyle and Old Duffer. He enjoyed fishing, golfing and spending time with his wife, dogs, family & friends. Doyle had been in a recent car accident, which left him injured. He continued to work, but we didn't know the pain he was suffering. We pray the Lord gives rest to our loved one. There were no services; his ashes will be spread in Colorado.2
