Charles Doyle Boggs, beloved husband, son, father, uncle, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend, passed away at the age of 92 on Wednesday, January 11th, 2023, after a short illness.

Doyle was the youngest son of Robert Lee Boggs and Arkie Juanita James.  Aside from briefly working away on the railroad, Doyle was a lifelong resident of Gassaway.  A 1949 graduate of Gassaway High School, he married the love of his life, Ethel Mae Westfall, in 1950.  The dedication and love between Doyle and Ethel Mae were evident to all those who know them.

Doyle began his railroad career as a clerk for the B&O Railroad in Gassaway, retiring in 1987 with 37 years’ service at Cowen.  He served his country in the WV Army National Guard.

A man of tremendous faith in God and love of his family, church family and neighbors, he was one of the oldest members of Gassaway Baptist Church, serving as deacon, trustee, and Sunday school teacher through the years. Besides faith and family, one of his greatest joys was helping with construction and repair projects for the church and others in the community.  In past years, Doyle especially enjoyed helping to prepare his homemade biscuits for the Easter Sunrise Service breakfast.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his four brothers: Harold Lee Boggs, Lawrence Earl Boggs, John William Boggs, James Robert Boggs; Great-grandson Tristian Nathaniel Boggs.

Doyle’s visitation will be 3 to 5 P.M. Sunday, January 15, 2023 at Gassaway Baptist Church, Gassaway.
