Russell J. Boyle (1920-2002)
After purchasing the Chisholm Home, he divided his time between the funeral home and a succecessful career in politics. He would serve 22 years on the Providence City Council, including 7 years as Council President. He was a man who could never say "no" to anyone, and always went the extra mile to assist those in need. His favorite saying was "It is nice to be important, but it more important to be nice".
Russell always stressed the value of service to the families he served. The staff at Boyle Funeral Home continues that tradition to this day.
He is survived by his children Barbara, Janet, and Thomas, six grandchildren and a great grandchild.
