Sunday, January 27, 2013

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

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.
