BOYLE, Deacon John F. Boyle, Jr., age 89, of Hingham and formerly of West Newton and Randolph, entered into eternal life on March 1, 2023. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Patricia Whalen Boyle and four children: Catherine Ryan; John F. Boyle, III and his wife, Joanne; Ellen Landry and her husband, John and Kenneth P. Boyle as well as six grandchildren: Eric Hoy and his wife, Lisa; Kevin Boyle and his wife, Molly; Andrea Thomas and her husband, Charles; Brendan Boyle and his wife, Gabriela; Jeffrey Boyle and his wife, Hannah and Norah Ryan, three great grandchildren: Cecelia and Ella Hoy and James Boyle, and brother, Richard W. Boyle, sister-in-law Gail McCuan and several nieces and nephews.

Deacon Boyle’s life was committed to his faith and family, and he took great joy in attending his grandchildren’s athletic, musical and theatrical events. His generous nature and passion for reading and learning enriched many lives. A true renaissance man: his uncommon and often humorous ability to analyze and interpret complicated subjects, scripture and emotions drew many to frequently seek out his wisdom and advice.

Deacon Boyle was educated at Saint Mary’s High School, Waltham, and held degrees from: Boston College B.S. cum laude; Suffolk University Law School, J.D.; Boston University Law School, L.L.M. He was a member of the Massachusetts Bar, the Federal District Bar for Massachusetts and the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States. Deacon Boyle was employed as the General Counsel of the Massachusetts State Lottery Commission and retired as the Director of Finance.

Deacon Boyle was ordained in September of the year 2000 at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston and was assigned to Saint Joseph’s Church in Holbrook. He performed many functions of Word, Sacrament and Charity. He preached at mass until just weeks before his death. During this time, he brought immense comfort and insight to many through his homilies, ministering to the sick and the thoughtful words he expressed at funeral liturgies and committals. He was recognized for his exemplary service to the Archdiocese of Boston and was granted a Cheverus award in 2019.

Deacon John’s humble approach to mentoring and serving was inspirational and admired by the family, friends and parishioners who benefited. He will be remembered and missed by many.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend visiting hours on Thursday, March 9th, from 4:00 – 7:00 PM in St. Joseph Church, 153 So. Franklin St., Holbrook. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, March 10th, at 11:00 AM in St. Joseph Church, Holbrook. Private family burial in St. Mary Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at stjude.org/donate.
