Roy Allen Coyle JR, 84, passed away on Sunday morning June 9, 2013.  Roy was born in Hamilton, OH, on October 5, 1928 to Roy Allen and Hazel Logsdon Coyle.  In Hamilton, he married the love of his life, Mildred Fugate, worked in the construction industry and raced stock cars in Indiana.  He made victory laps in his car The 8 Ball, proudly displaying the checkered flag.  In 1955 he moved his family of four to Miami, Florida.  There he started his own construction company building many custom homes and swimming pools in the Miami and Miami Beach area.  In Miami he pursued his passion for fishing with family and friends, regularly launching his boat and heading out The Haulover Inlet to the Gulf Stream.  in 1964, he moved his family now numbering six to Melbourne Beach, where he worked on NASA's Vertical (Vehicle) Assemble Building from ground up to completion.  He continued to operate his construction business, building custom homes in the Melbourne Beach area, as well as commercial projects in Brevard County and Florida.  In 1989 while Roy was serving as building inspector for Melbourne Beach, the original Beaujean House was discovered attached to a larger house that was being demolished.  An effort was made by Roy, Frank Thomas and postmaster Sam Tyson to save the historic structure.  It was moved to the post office property.  From 1964 until his passing Roy made Melbourne Beach his home.  Many people living in this area will fondly remember and miss him.

He is survived by two sons and daughters - Roy Allen Coyle III (Debbie) of Melbourne, FL, Raymond Thomas Coyle (Cindy) of Indialantic, FL, Anna Mick (Randy) of Melbourne, FL and Pat Urbach of Melbourne, FL, two brothers - James Coyle (Mary) of Melbourne, FL and Ronald Coyle (Trish) of Palmetto Bay, FL and sister in law Betty.  He was preceded in death by his parents Roy Allen and Hazel Logsdon Coyle, his wife Mildred Coyle and brothers Frank Coyle and Larkin Coyle.  Additional survivors include seven grandchildren, four great grand children, nieces, nephews and many, many friends.

Condolences to you and your family. I just shared this poem with our family and now I share it with you. May you find solace within it.                              

Death is only an old door
Set in a garden wall;
On gentle hinges it gives, at dusk
When the thrushes call.

Along the lintel are green leaves,
Beyond the light lies still;
Very willing and weary feet
Go over that sill.

There is nothing to trouble my heart;
Nothing to hurt at all.
Death is only a quiet door
In an old wall.

How many times have you heard Dad sing this?



Grandpa, I looked up to him a person, my Grandmother loved him...

He was a great man with many ways... success, hope, life... The secret of life, happiness, he knew that. Grandpa did what he loved though life, and even these last years did so well for him self. He was an honest man set in his ways.


You can't beat honesty and happiness.

He will be so missed.

Hey everyone.  Hope we can all find our way through this loss together..lets hang on to each other.  Hope this site helps..
