Celebration of Life Service


June 8, 1952 – May 15, 2021

Dennis J Doyle, of Eden Prairie, died peacefully on May 15, 2021. He spent his final days at English Rose Suites, surrounded by his loving family. Preceded in death by his parents John and Barbara Doyle. Survived by his loving wife Megan, and sons Devin (Kristen) Doyle and Nathan Doyle; brother Patrick; Kevin (Cheri); Brian (Crystal); and sister Colleen Doyle Ruegemer (Jeffrey); sister-in-law Mary Cay Brass; brothers-in-law Thomas (Char) Brass; Mike (Lisa) Brass; grandchildren Madeline; and Jack.

Dennis was a successful entrepreneur whose life impacted tens of thousands of lives through one of the many businesses he founded in the commercial real estate business including Welsh Companies and Wildamere Capital Management, and philanthropically through Hope for the City (now Matter.ngo) and the generosity of his time, finances and abundant opportunities to others. He leaves behind a rich legacy of business, faith in God and care for the most vulnerable in MN and the world.

The Celebration of Life Service will take place on Monday, May 24 at 11 AM with visitation starting at 10 AM. The service will be live streamed on this site for those unable to attend. Arrangements through Washburn-McReavy Edina 952-920-3996. A private burial will take place at Lakewood Cemetery.


Each day through my work at HFTC (Hope For The City) my love and understanding of the poor grows. I have received so much more than what we have given. Although we serve over 10,000 people per month I feel that I am the greatest recipient. 



With the passing of Dennis, the world lost one of its most ardent advocates for the poor and disadvantaged. Yet his legacy will live on through MATTER, whose very DNA reflects Dennis’ belief that people matter and every single one deserves the chance to live a full and dignified life.  The family prefers donations and remembrances to go toward MATTER (formerly known as Hope for the city).
