Doyle Wayne Purvis

June 4, 1939 ~ January 11, 2021 (age 81)


Doyle Wayne Purvis was born June 4, 1939 in Gallman, Mississippi. He went home to Heaven after suffering a major heart attack on January 11, 2021.

Doyle served his country in the U.S. Army and was an avid outdoorsman. He loved hunting, fishing, working in his garden, and just spending time with the Lord outside. He started every morning on his patio having coffee with Jesus, praying at length for his family. He was a faithful member of Triumph Church. He had a Servant's heart and was always willing to help wherever he was needed. He was also a member of the 480 Union of Electricians. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Dovie May Purvis; and three brothers, Robert, Ernest, and Odel Purvis. 

He is survived by his wife, Bonita Purvis; his daughter and son-in-love Debi and Merritt Aden and his grandson, Jared Aden, all of Vicksburg; two brothers, Elton (Mary) Purvis of Manning, SC, and Calvin (Pat) Purvis of Stayton, Oregon; and his best friend, Percy McCullough.

A private family graveside service will be held due to COVID concerns. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. His pastor, Reverend Mike Fields of Triumph Church, will officiate.
