Mr. Boyle was born on April 6, 1948 in Donegal, Ireland to James Boyle and Sarah Melly Boyle. He came to the United States on July 1, 1957. He was raised and educated in the Bronx, NY and graduated from St. Helena’s High School.
Mr. Boyle began work with Liberty Lines Transportation as a bus driver and eventually became the Director of Safety and Training at Liberty Lines Transportation in Yonkers, NY. He was with the company for 37 years before retiring in 2013.

He was a man that was loved by all that were fortunate enough to have met him. Always quick with a smile or a helping hand for all. He was of all things a man of character and strength. He was a proud member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, with which he worked the reviewing stand at the New York City St. Patrick’s Day parade every year.
