Richard P. "Dick" Boyle Sr., 76, of New Britain, beloved husband of Judith (Nowak) Boyle, passed away on May 8, 2020. The family was unable to have a funeral Mass last year.

The Carlson Funeral Home, New Britain, is assisting with arrangements. Please share a memory or note of sympathy at www.carlsonfuneralhome.com.
A New Britain native and lifelong resident, he was predeceased by his parents, the late Patrick and Angela (Gresh) Boyle; his sister Patricia; and his mother-in-law, Helen Nowak. Besides his wife Judy of 56 years, he also left four children, Susan H. Boyle of Farmington; Richard P. "Rick" Boyle Jr., Kevin M. Boyle and Sheila Boyle, all of New Britain; and two grandchildren, Tech. Sgt. Patrick M. Boyle, USAF (Active), and Kimberly M. Boyle of Florida. On Nov. 21, 2020, Richard's beloved feline companion, Whitey Bobcat joined him on his journey, so the two best friends are reunited once again.
