Heartbroken at the passing of my dear friend Patrick Doyle. He was cherished .What a loss for us all. He was one of the most talented, funny, smart and all around incredible humans I have ever known. See you on the other side my buddy.— Frankie Rose (@heyfrankierose) March 4, 2018
RIP Patrick Doyle. Here's a pic of a wonderful day we had in LA this past Sept. I'm just really sorry. I've known him for many years but only started to get to know him as a good friend. I hope I see him in the next dimension when it's my time. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/itV3XpK6BC— KEVIN/HAIRS (@IAmKevinHairs) March 4, 2018
