Russell J. Boyle (1920-2002)
M r. Boyle, the founder of the funeral home which bears his name, spent the majority of his life involved in the funeral industry. Russell worked at the former Chisholm Funeral Home beginning at the age of 10. He would open the doors of the limousines for famililies, and would eventually become the premier embalmer in the State of Rhode Island, embalming and directing funerals for over a dozen different funeral homes.

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.
