William O. Boyle

January 4, 1948 - December 2, 2017

William (Bill) Boyle passed away in his sleep Saturday, December 2, 2017. He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Lynn Garren, their daughter Melinda, her husband Charles, and their children and grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Barbara and her children.

Once a sought after auto mechanic, Bill was known for his work as a software engineer. He was also known for his Mexican cooking and love for coffee, music, tequila, and British humor.

Bill spent his early years in Lincoln, Nebraska until the family moved to Denver, Colorado. Later, Bill’s adventurous and entrepreneurial spirit led him to own an automotive shop before leading him into the field of software engineering long before computer science classes became common.

Bill loved music of all kinds, and was often found playing mandolin in bluegrass and old-time jam sessions.

Bill was loved by all who knew him. One wonders which will be missed more, his offbeat dry humor or his enchiladas de mole.

A remembrance party will be held at the home on Saturday, Dec. 9. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the ACLU.

  • Nora I'm so sorry for your loss. The pain and grief of loosing someone we love can seem unbearable. Something that can be comforting is God's word. As 1 Corinthians 1:3&4 says; ...the God of all comfort, who comforts all in our trials...The Bible helps us to understand how God feels about death. Isaiah 25:8 says God will defeat our enemy death, and it will be gone forever. -More comforting truths can be found in a book called "What Does the Bible Really Teach". I hope you will look into this subject further. I know it will bring you comfort and peace as it did me. Sincerely Nora Book found on JW.ORG
