Boyle LeoBOYLE, 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.

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.
