The marvellous William Peter Boyle passed away peacefully on August 4.
He will be dearly missed by his sons, Julian and Keith, and his many grandchildren, relatives and friends.
His mercurial nature was softened by the quickest and most active of wits. As well as being an engineer of note, he was a gifted moral philosopher – and a helluva’ good guy.
I trode the earth and knew it was my tomb,
And now I die, and now I am but made.
The glass is full, and now the glass is run,
And now I live, and now my life is done. (Chidiock)
