Ervin Doyle Roquemore was born in Tye, Texas on August 2, 1935. He was the second oldest of nine siblings. Growing up as a cotton farmer was hard labor and provided little food and clothing. After being dissatisfied and frustrated working at a local mill company as a teenager, he quit and joined the Navy the same day. To celebrate his new adventure in life, he bought himself the largest soft drink and candy bar he could buy and enjoyed watching a movie in the local air conditioned theater. The navy provided Doyle an education as an electrician and the experience to travel to many ports of the world. One of those ports would bring Doyle to southern California where he was introduced to Glenda Belle Neese. Their courtship and marriage was awarded with their first son Michael, raised in Texas until Dad finished his term in the Navy. Doyle and Glenda returned to southern California and raised three more sons, Timothy, Steven and John, in Torrance, California. After 56 years of marriage, Doyle and Glenda have been blessed with nine grandchildren, Christopher, Matthew, Andrew, Scott, Bryan, Amy, Luke, Joshua, and Daniel.

  1. I do not know that I have met a finer man. It was a privilege to have known him, hear his contagious laugh and watch the love and pride he had for his family. His love for his Lord was truly an inspiration. My prayers are with Glenda and the boys.
