John Brennan

John E. “Jack” Brennan, a resident of Beverly Hills, FL from 1999 to 2013, passed away on June 13

A cribbage player in his leisure hours over many decades, Jack had beaten his daughter in a game earlier that morning.

He was raised in Evanston and Jersey City, New Jersey, where he attended parochial school and was a graduate of St. Aloysius High School. He received a bachelor’s degree from Manhattan College in the Bronx, NY, and was drafted into the Army, where he served for two years while stationed in Germany.
Jack and his family lived for many years in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts, where he worked at the nearby Acushnet Company – manufacturer of Titleist golf balls and clubs – as a human resource leader. Later in his career he filled a similar role for the Griffin Well Service of El Campo, Texas.

Jack is survived by his wife of 59 years, Mary Ann; sons John, William, and Michael, all of Austin, Texas; daughters Elizabeth Cox of Sarasota, Florida, and Eileen Bayers of Brooklyn, New York; daughters-in-law Anne Bichteler and Lynn Knox; sons-in-law Paul Wheeler, Chip Bayers, and James Cox; and grandchildren Gregory, David, and Mary Wheeler. His daughter Katherine Wheeler, who died in 2010, was a longtime resident of Inverness with her husband and children.

James P. Doyle — Atlanta
Jul 20, 2017 Updated 3 hrs ago (…)

James P. “Jim” Doyle passed away peacefully at his home in Atlanta on July 14, 2017, after a long and courageous struggle with complications of prostate cancer. He was 79.

He was predeceased by his parents, James and Mae A. Doyle; his grandson, Michael Frame; his brother, Edward Doyle; and his son-in-law, Thomas Morris.

Born and raised in Parkchester, N.Y., Jim graduated from Manhattan Prep High School and Manhattan College with his Bachelor of Business Administration.

Jim married the love of his life, Rosemary Fox, Nov. 19, 1960. They started their family and lived in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., Rochester, Minn., Ridgefield, Conn., Atlanta, New Fairfiled, Conn., Schaumburg, Ill., Savannah, Ga., and finally again in Atlanta. Jim spent most of his business career with IBM, retiring in 1997 after 35 years of service. At that time he was Vice President of Human Resources and Administration for Advantis, a Networking Technology company, where IBM was the majority investor along with Sears. Prior executive positions include Vice President Human Resources, ROLM, a telecommunication partnership between IBM and Siemens, Director of Employee Relations for IBM, Vice President Management Services, IBM Latin America and Director of Personnel for IBM’s Southwest Marketing Division. In addition to a wonderful career, IBM provided him with many life long friends that he treasured.

Jim and Rosemary retired to The Landings in Skidaway Island in 1997. He enjoyed playing in several golf groups as well as participating in couples Pinochle, Hearts, and book club groups. The Landings provided them wonderful friends who they traveled the world with, as well as enjoyed the pleasures the city of Savannah had to offer. They relocated to Atlanta in June 2016.

Jim is survived by Rosemary Catherine Doyle, his loving wife of 56 ½ years; his five children, Kitty Liebeg (Kevin) of Victoria, Minn., Mary Anne Morris of Birmingham, Ala., James Doyle (Robin Gonsalves) of Pleasanton, Calif., Deirdre Doyle (David Frame) of Roswell, Ga., and Rosey McCrobie (Ted) of Woodstock, Ga.; as well as 12 grandchildren, Kasey Liebeg, Carson Liebeg, Thomas Morris, Sean Morris, Jimmy Doyle, Bridget Frame, Vivian Frame, Aidan Frame, Peter Frame, Daniel McCrobie, Katie Rose McCrobie, and Grace McCrobie.

Jim loved his family fiercely. He was a wonderful husband to Rosemary, fabulous father to his children, loving Grandpa and Bumpa to his grandchildren. He will be remembered as a devoted, generous, compassionate and loving man. All that knew him were blessed with his friendship, love and support. While very proud of his children’s accomplishments in life, those of his grandchildren put him over the moon. Jim was larger than life and left his mark on all his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed. Jim fought the good fight, he won the race and we are confident he was welcomed into Heaven by his Lord & Savior with the words ‘well done my good and faithful servant.’

Visitation will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 16, at Northside Chapel, Roswell, Ga. Mass of Christian Burial will be 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17, at St. Peter Chanel Catholic Church, Roswell, Ga.
