DURHAM - Angelo V. Boy, husband of the late Barbara Sarnie Boy and father of the late Stephanie Boy died Saturday, June 16, 2018.

Currently survived by daughters, Eleanor Boy, Bernadette Paradis and her husband Zachary, and Monica Swenson and her husband John; grandfather of Samantha and Rye Morrill, Christopher Paradis, Kyle Cooke, Jocelyn and Erik Swenson; uncle to four Massachusetts nephews with the surname Boy; Charles of Everett, Joseph of Wakefield, John of Saugus, and Stephen of Newburyport; and two nieces the late Phyllis Howard of Hacienda Heights, California and Helen Boy of Minnetonka, Minnesota.

In 1965 Professor Boy was selected to initiate and develop the Graduate Program in Counseling at the University of New Hampshire. In 2002 he concluded his Program leadership when he retired as Emeritus Professor of Education.

Professor Boy co authored nine USA published counseling textbooks and over 120 articles in related professional journals. Four of the textbooks were republished in Korean, Japanese, Spanish, and Portuguese. He also wrote seven original chapters for other textbooks and had twenty of his journal articles republished in counseling textbooks.

In recognition of his publication contributions to professional counseling, Professor Boy was presented with the 1997 Research Award by the Counselor Education Division of American Counseling Association. In his teaching, research and service, Professor Boy pioneered having school and mental health counselors spend more time counseling rather than being diverted from counseling by organizational or external paperwork.

During retirement, Professor Boy wrote about his avocational interest, golf, in the 2007 book, "Golf Improvement Through Emotional Intelligence." The 2007 book evolved from a series of 23 articles on the psychology of golf which he authored in 1975 and which were consecutively published in Nikkan Gendai a Japanese daily newspaper.

At UNH Professor Boy was also Director of the National Defense Counseling Institute, Director of the Women's Information Service in Education which was jointly sponsored by the US Office of Education and the Spaulding Potter Trust of New Hampshire and served on the initial Title IX Committee which was charged with providing equal access to athletics for UNH women. During four summer sessions Professor Boy was a visiting professor at the Universities of Arizona, Hawaii, Colorado and Toronto. Prior to UNH, Professor Boy spent eight years as a middle school counselor in the Everett and Lexington Massachusetts Schools. During that period he also served Boston University by supervising counseling interns in his assigned schools, lecturing at federally sponsored counseling institutes and being a member of its adjunct faculty. He was also a consultant to the Massachusetts Division of Youth Services and was a committee member of the Harvard-Lexington Pupil Personnel Services Evaluation Committee. Professor Boy was among the first group to be licensed as a psychologist in Massachusetts and was a Fellow of the Massachusetts Psychological Association. Professor Boy received his undergraduate degree at the University of Notre Dame while his master's degree and doctorate were awarded by the Boston University School of Education.

SERVICES: A private family graveside service will be held and internment will take place at the Durham Cemetery in Durham, New Hampshire. Online condolences may be sent to Angelo Boy's family by accessing the Tasker Funeral Home. Please go to to sign the online guestbook.
