After receiving an honorable discharge from the Army, where he served in the Quartermaster Corps during World War II, he married the former Erma Catherine Bull. Mrs. Boyle died in 1981.

From 1951 to 1982, Mr. Boyle was director of employee relations for National Brewing, the now-defunct maker of National Bohemian Beer.

For the past 26 years, he had been a member of St. Ignatius church on Calvert Street and led the congregation in hymns. A tenor, he also sang at the church's annual St. Patrick's Day party and was a member of the old National Brewing Co.'s Glee Club.

A funeral Mass will be offered at 10 a.m. Monday at St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church on Frankford Avenue.

Survivors include a son, Thomas J. Boyle, Jr. of New York; and five daughters, Kathleen S. Taylor of Baltimore, Erma Josephine Pazdersky of Pylesville, and Ruth Anne Flaherty, Patricia Baker and Jane C. Boyle, all of Baltimore; eight grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
