BOYLE, Leo Patrick Grattan - Died as he lived: quietly, peacefully, and enveloped in the love of his family. Though his cancer was aggressive and the fight all too brief, his sense of humour, his gratitude, and his concern for others never once wavered.
For the entirety of his 63 years, Leo treated everyone with respect & kindness, even on his darkest of days. Not out of duty, but because it was woven into every fibre of his being. Regardless of his accomplishments, he was a humble man struck with awe and wonder, overwhelmed by the kindness of others and the beauty of the world.
He taught us many things: there is more value in listening than in speaking. Kindness doesn't cost you anything. Always say please & thank you. Play the cards you're dealt. Leo will be missed greatly; by his family, his friends, his colleagues, and anyone who ever had the blessing to encounter him.
