Sunday, January 27, 2013

Patrick John Boyle, Sr., 60, of Ringgold, died on Saturday, January 26, 2013 in a local hospital.  

Patrick was a native of Detroit, Mi., had lived several years in San Diego, Ca., and the past 30 years in the Chattanooga and Ringgold area.

He was preceded in death by his father, Joseph Boyle and brother, Daniel Boyle.

Survivors include his wife, Jeanne Boyle; two sons, Patrick John Boyle, Jr. and his wife, Denise of White Lake, Mi., and Joseph Edward Boyle of Chattanooga; mother, Viola Boyle of Detroit, Mi.; brothers, Michael, Joseph, Victor, Mark, Richard, and Thomas Boyle; sisters, Penny Kuchta, Mary Artrip, Susan “Suzy” Morrison, and Kathleen “Kaki” Pate; three grandchildren, Joseph Edward Boyle II, Thomas Patrick Boyle, and Christian Kenneth Boyle; and several nieces and nephews.
