Brian was born November 10, 1958, to Francis and Joanne (Needham) Doyle. He graduated from Urbandale High School in 1977 and enlisted in the Army and was active duty for 2 years in Germany.

He was a member of the American Postal Worker's Union Local #7027 and the Adel-Waukee Knights of Columbus Council 9574.
