We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Ogden
John Boyle (Father Pat), 94, passed away about 4:00 a.m., Saturday, August 13, 2022, at the Assisted Living section of St. Joseph Villa, Salt Lake City, UT. After the Monastery in Huntsville closed in 2017, Father Pat lived at the Senior Apartments before his health problems required greater care.
Father Pat was born in St. Louis on April 8, 1928, to Ed and Mary Delahunty Boyle, both from Ireland. Father Pat felt a call to the priesthood at age eleven. He completed a philosophy degree at Kendrick Seminary College, and in 1950 he entered the Monastery in Huntsville.
Father Pat distinguished himself as community sacristan, preparing for our community worship services, which were the better part of the monastic-day. Even into middle age he was sometimes assigned to the summer farm work, and though slightly built, he handled hay bales with the best of us.
In 1967 he was ordained a priest and over the years became an extraordinarily popular counselor and confessor. For his gifs to us of his counseling and support, our best return is prayer for Father Pat’s eternal happiness.
The funeral Mass will be Thursday, August 18, 2022, at 11:30 a.m. at St. Ann Catholic Church, 2100 So. 400 East, Salt Lake City, UT. Interment will be at the Monastery cemetery in Huntsville, UT,
Services entrusted to Myers Mortuary, 845 Washington Blvd., Ogden, UT.
