Frederick Allan Boyle (December 13, 1922 - January 19, 2014) passed away peacefully in Abbotsford Regional Hospital the morning of January 19th with his family at his side, including his loving and supportive wife Lorraine, daughter Kim (Bernard), sons Brock (Sherry) and Duart. Fred will always be remembered as a wonderfully warm-hearted, witty man, a friend to all who knew him. Trained during WWII as a RCAF navigator, he went on to serve the community of Mission for many years as a lawyer, magistrate, coroner, and judge and was an active member of the Mission Rotary Club. Fred participated with vigour in many sports, including curling, golf, and lawn bowling, but was perhaps best known for his skill on the tennis courts. He loved the sport and played actively until well into his eighties. A private, family-only memorial event will be held in the near future. Fred donated his body to the University of British Columbia (UBC) for the purposes of anatomical study and medical research. Donations in lieu of flowers, and in Fred's name, can be made to the Salvation Army (http://www.salvationarmy.ca/tag/donations/).
