We are deeply saddened to share the news that John Doyle, our dear friend and long-time colleague, passed away peacefully in the presence of his family on Monday, May 28th. John was devoted to his clients and set the highest standard for professional integrity over four decades.
John’s wife Dee, his four children - John, Steffen, Joby and Susannah, and his many grandchildren will remain in our hearts as we work to honor John’s legacy moving forward. The Doyle family will continue to be a part of the Pettyjohn, Wood & White family for as long as we are privileged to continue to serve the many wonderful families that have supported the firm for so many years.
Succession planning was important to John, as he worked hard in recent years to ensure the long-term continuity of the firm. He had curtailed his professional schedule a bit in recent months, but he remained highly engaged in servicing our long-term clients until the very end. John was very proud of our dedicated team, and he took comfort in knowing that the firm would continue to serve his friends and clients for years to come.
We will strive to honor John’s memory with the ongoing quality of our work. It has been an honor and a privilege to call John our friend and colleague. His guidance and contributions will always be with us.
At Pettyjohn, Wood & White, we provide trusted professional guidance and advice in the management of investment portfolios for a select group of clients. Our success is driven by our extensive attention to detail in customizing client portfolios and the depth of our personal commitment in managing the totality of our clients’ financial affairs.
