Doy was a graduate of Sheridan High School with the class of 1953.  During a trip to Parnell, he spotted Shirley Anne Thompson and decided that he was going to marry her.  They were married on March 15, 1952 in Parnell.  To this union four children were born: Edmond Wayne, Pamela Sue, Douglas Lee, and Lisa Anne.  Doy and Shirley made their home northeast of Sheridan, on the D-S Ranch, raising Simbra Simmental Brahma cross cattle.  He loved his horses, most notably, Joker.  You would often see Doy organizing the Sheridan Defiance Day parade and carrying the American Flag on horseback or riding with the Sheridan Saddle Club at the rodeo.

Doy loved playing music, whether it be parties at the pit, at the Nation, Brownville, NE, or the American Legion. His hits included the Green Green Grass of Home, Heartaches by the Number, Charlie’s Shoes, and Swinging Doors to name a few.  He also loved to dance and belonged to the Levi & Laces Square Dance group.  Doy worked at Four Valley Lumber and retired from Sur-Gro Plant Food Company both in Sheridan.  He was a longtime member of the Isadora Cemetery Board and took pride in helping to put the flags up for Memorial Day.  Doy was of the Christian Faith and at the time of his death belonged to the Sheridan United Methodist Church. 

Doy and Shirley loved their family greatly and their most prized moments were holidays, birthdays, and any excuse to get the tribe together. Preceding Doy in death were his son, Douglas Lee; daughter-in-law, Neva Sue; grandchild, Travis Wayne; great-grandchildren, Parker Allee, Ryder Rush, Leo & Liam Allee; 1 brother, Guy “Bud” Allee; and sisters: Maryon Asher, Joanne Davis, Martha Rush, & Beverly Mayes.  Left to cherish Doy’s memory are his children: Edmond Allee of Diagonal, IA; Pamela (Larry) Shore, Clarinda, IA; Lisa (Robert) Reidlinger, of Clyde, MO; daughter-in-law, Ruby Ann Allee of Sheridan, MO; 16 of grandchildren; 32 great-grandchildren;  6 great-great grandchildren; nieces, nephews, and a host of friends.
