Obituary of David Boyle
BOYLE, David Samuel

1941- 2010

In tears we saw you sinking

We watched you fade away

Our Hearts were almost broken

You fought so hard to stay

But when we saw you sleeping

So peacefully from pain

We could not wish you back again

To suffer that pain



Born in Portadown, Northern Ireland on March 26, 1941. Passed away September 15, 2010, after a courageous battle with esophageal cancer. Predeceased by his father Samuel W. Boyle and survived by his mother Sarah Boyle, son Glenn Collins Boyle and his wife Tracey and grandchildren Meghan and Brandon. Dear brother of Roberta Strickland and her husband Robert. Cherished uncle to Robbie and Ryan Strickland. Survived also by sisters Anne (Norman) Evans and Frances (the late Paul) Barnard, and their children Brian and Colin Evans and Rob and Meghan Barnard. Beloved nephew to Robert and Mary Hamill. A special thank-you to his cherished friend and guardian angel Diane Finley whose love and devotion has meant so much to his family. To Diane Finley's children, Charlene, Calvyn, and Troy and their families who have been so supportive. And to David's many friends, too numerous to mention at the Donro trailer park who have been an extended family and supported him throughout the years. A Celebration of David's Life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 26th at the PETERBOROUGH NAVY CLUB, 24 Whitlaw Street (Lansdowne St. at River Road). Visitation 1 hour prior to service.

May the road rise to meet you

May the wind always be at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

The rains fall soft upon your fields

And until we meet again

May God hold you in the palm of his hand
